Wind Power Could Account for 20 Percent of Electricity
A graduate of Yale University, David Lawrence formerly served as the executive vice president of exploration and commercial for Shell Upstream Americas. In this capacity, David Lawrence oversaw the management of the Shell wind business, which included eight separate projects with a capacity of more than 900 total megawatts in the United States.

As of October 2016, the Global Wind Energy Council announced that the power source could provide up to 20 percent of the world’s total electricity within the next 14 years. While recognized as a very challenging target, this may be possible, in part, due to the mandates set down at last year’s climate conference in Paris, at which major countries from around the world agreed to come together in an effort to reduce the occurrence of global warming. 

Wind power is an attractive option for countries looking to meet reduction targets for carbon dioxide emissions because it is both clean and sustainable. In addition to the environmental benefits, the commitment to growing global use of wind turbines for energy production could create more than two million new jobs and generate new investment opportunities worth billions.
