Wind power does not generate emissions, but its life cycle - from raw material extraction through manufacturing and construction to end of life disposal - does. Wood Mackenzie took a closer look a the numbers.

Official Press Release Wood Mackenzie:

New global wind power life cycle emissions to reach 55 Mt CO2 from 2020-2050

Wind Industry Profile of
New global wind power life cycle emissions to reach 55 Mt CO2 from 2020-2050

Wind power is one of the greenest power generation technologies, second to nuclear

According to Wood Mackenzie, a Verisk business (Nasdaq:VRSK), global wind power life cycle emissions will reach 55 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (Mt CO2) from 2020 to 2050, a result of wind power capacity expanding five-fold to 3.7 terawatts from 2020 to 2050. This is roughly equivalent to four times the US’s total power capacity in 2020. Wind power does not generate emissions, but its life cycle - from raw material extraction through manufacturing and construction to end of life disposal - does. Up to 86% of wind power life cycle emissions are attributed to the extraction of raw materials and the manufacturing of wind turbines. This includes using metals... ...
