Renewable energy is about to win the fight against fossil fuels.
A huge farm of wind turbines, built in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean could save the whole planet.
In a study led by Anna Possner and Ken Caldeira, from the University of Standford Sciences in California, in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, we are told that a huge farm of wind turbines would produce four times more energy per square meter than turbines located on land.
Why in the North Atlantic?
Wind speed is 70% higher above the oceans than on land. The project would cover an area of 3 million square kilometersand would provide 18 terawatts annually, the actual amount of energy that is currently globally consumed.
At the moment everything is just on paper, but a computerized simulation has proved the researchers are right and it is very possible to be achieved in the near future.
