Europe possesses an energy source which could power it seven times over : the wind. European companies are world leaders in wind power, generating thousands of jobs . Wind energy reduces Europe’s dependence , and spending, on imported fossil fuels. It lowers electricity prices and emits no CO2 .
Over the next 12 years, Europe must build new power capacity equal to half the current total. We must use this opportunity to construct a modern power system that meets the challenges of the 21st century.
