Vestas

Impact in brief • 3 min read 

Vestas

In 2021, global carbon dioxide emissions reached a high of around 36.5 billion metric tons. Alarmingly, power generation was responsible for the majority of these emissions.

THE MAGIC OF WIND POWER

Renewable energy offers hope. In particular, wind power has been shown to have a carbon footprint 99% below that of coal-fired power plants and 98% lower than that of natural gas plants.

Not only that, wind-generated power has also proven to be the cheapest of all power sources, with the energy source routinely purchased for just two cents per kilowatt-hour.

Vestas is at the leading edge of wind power. In 2020 alone, they installed wind turbines that had an output of 130 gigawatts. This prevented the equivalent to the annual CO2 emissions of 31 million electricity-using homes.

Vestas is always looking for ways to have a deeper impact. And while their wind turbines are made of mainly recyclable material, the turbine rotors consist of a relatively large amount of non-recyclable composites.

In response, the company recently introduced incremental targets to increase the recyclability rate of their turbine rotors. This is in line with their aim to be totally carbon neutral by 2030, without any carbon offsets.

VESTAS QUICK FACTS

  • With over 77,000 wind turbines installed across 84 countries, Vestas is involved in 18% of all global wind energy production.
  • The company avoided 186m tonnes CO2e avoided last year, the equivalent to removing 125m cars.
