Harnessing wind in Benin has potential

Enabling the production of small wind turbines in Benin has the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the country’s rural and peri-urban areas by 5 kilotons of CO₂ every year. This is the conclusion of a project Partners for Innovation has carried out for the Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN). In total, Benin can expect to produce 7.7 GWh of renewable energy each year if all the locations identified in the project are electrified. The project shows that wind speeds are high and reliable enough for generating significant kilowatt hours of energy.
