Climate change and the paradox of wind energy

In September 2017 NZWEA provided a thought piece for 'Pure Advantage's Thought Leader' series of articles.

The thought piece notes the important role renewable energy plays in reducing man-made climate change. The article covers the paradox that we need more renewables like wind energy yet often challenge proposed developments based on landscape and amenity impacts and suggests we change our perspective. In particular that we focus on the improvements in our quality of life that comes from renewable electricity while generating zero emissions.
