  • Wind energy, CO2, climate change and SF6 in perspective

    Sep 25, 2019 · At end-of-life the turbine switchgears are collected and the sulphur hexafluoride gas is reclaimed and reused in new equipment. By comparison wind energy avoids the emission of 255 million tonnes of CO 2 in Europe a year by generating 336TWh of electricity displacing fossil fuels. The SF6 leakage therefore represents around 0.001% of the emissions avoided thanks to wind energy every year.
