ONSHORE WIND POWER

ONSHORE WIND POWER

Energy generation from wind on the mainland is called onshore. As one of the most cost-effective sectors of renewable energy, the use of wind energy on land is becoming increasingly important for the expansion of renewable energies. Onshore wind energy already accounts for a good 13 percent of the electricity mix in Germany. By the end of 2017, 28,675 wind turbines in Germany with an installed capacity of around 50,000 megawatts were producing electricity for companies and households.

Wind turbines can usually be manufactured within a few months with relatively little material and energy expenditure. A wind turbine reaches its energetic payback period after just a short period of operation. An onshore wind turbine takes between three and seven months to pay for itself in terms of energy. After that, every hour of operation provides “net” clean electricity – on average for at least 20 years. Depending on its design, a wind turbine can therefore provide 40 to 70 times more energy over its entire lifespan than was used to produce, use and dispose of it. Both the climate and energy balance are therefore clearly positive – in contrast to fossil power plants. Even after the system has been completed, these always require an external energy supply in the form of fuels in order to convert them into electricity or heat with often very poor efficiency levels – whereby greenhouse gases that are harmful to the climate are released.

Wind turbines make an important contribution to climate protection and thus directly contribute to the preservation of landscapes and natural areas.
