The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) is currently in Copenhagen for the WindEurope Electric City 2021 event, and as an important player in this field of research, DTU Wind Energy is also taking part. Green electrification requires energy from renewable energy sources. So far, the wind is one of the safest bets on an energy source that can supply green power. If we are to achieve the European target of a 55 percent reduction of greenhouse gases and the Danish goal of a 70 percent reduction of greenhouse gases by 2030, the wind power industry has a busy time ahead.
HRH Crown Prince Frederik who opened the event on 22nd November shares the industry’s interest in accelerating the green transition. He said that the “challenges are so big, but so is the potential”. One new area of development is that the digitalization of the huge energy plants that the wind turbines of the future will be based on. Studies by WindEurope show that digitalization is the key to making about everything faster, smarter, and cheaper. And this is what DTU Wind Energy is interested in.
Obviously, the other things that can help achieve our target of reducing Greenhouse Gases are Solar Power and Geothermal Power. I was really hoping that many people would come forward to support this initiative which was already tested and implemented by Dar-Lon Chang at GEOS Neighborhood in the City of Arvada, Colorado.
Please do make the earth a better place to live for our future generations to come! Let’s help make a difference and it’s TIME now to ACT! Don’t forget, there is no Planet B!
