Campaign messageEurope 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 Europes 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.
Give Europe a breath of fresh air by adopting a wind turbine at www.ewea.org/freshair
