Europe has space for enough wind turbines to power the entire world

Europe has enough space to create millions of wind turbines that could power the entire world until 2050, according to a new scientific analysis. 

An international team of researchers say there is 4.9 million square kilometres of land – 46 per cent of Europe’s total land – that would be suitable for wind turbines, according to the paper published in Energy Policy.

Building 11 million additional wind turbines could create 497 exajoules of power which would supply the world’s energy needs until 2050 when there is expected to be a global demand of 430 exajoules.
