Over the past decade, especially wind power has become a serious low-carbon alternative to conventional energy sources such as fossil fuels or nuclear power. According to KPMG, wind-based capacities have grown globally by 17% since 2014, with China, the United States and Germany leading the way.¹
But wind power is not just becoming more relevant in terms of market share. It also meets the public’s demand for cleaner, greener consumption. With many consumers nowadays having adopted a green mindset, a sustainable lifestyle is not a choice but a way of life, and is recalibrating consumer expectations around resource maximization.²
True to its commitment to making the world a brighter place, Covestro is continuously striving to lead the way towards a more cost-competitive future for wind energy production – with the associated benefits for business partners, customers and society as a whole.
