Wind power preserves a healthy environment
The Case for Wind, in 10 Blade Points
Living a long, healthy life goes hand-in-hand with preserving a clean and healthy environment. Wind turbine blades create energy by capturing the wind — a clean, renewable resource, that will never run out. When looking at the entire life cycle of a wind turbine, the turbine quickly contributes to a cleaner world, by avoiding air pollution and the environmental degradation associated with burning fossil fuels.
Of course wind turbine manufacturing leaves a footprint, like any manufacturing process, and we continuously strive to become more sustainable throughout our product’s life cycle. Currently it takes 3-6 months to recoup the energy that goes into producing, operating and recycling a wind turbine after its 20-25 year lifetime (GWEC). We are proud of our contribution to a cleaner world, and know we can always do more to minimize our impact by developing ever more efficient and reliable blades.
