Regional Wind Campaigns
Following the 10% World Wind Campaign, INFORSE-Europe and INFORSE Latin America are launching regional wind campaigns. For Western Europe, the goal is to have 12% of the electricity demand covered by wind by 2020, while for Ukraine, the goal is 11%. For the other areas covered by the campaign, Russia and Cono Sur in Latin America, the goals are still to be decided. For each area, a report is made, with potentials for wind energy, proposed goal, and assessments of effects on economy, employment, and environment. Further, policy recommendations are made for the areas and as many concerned NGOs as possible are consulted. As a final kick-off for the campaigns, public presentations are made and plans are made for the campaigns in cooperation with concerned NGOs.
