  8. Wind Energy Insert Artifact Picture Here Belarus uses 1.9 to 2.0 Mtoe per year. The amount of energy made from wind farms in Belarus is about 220 billion kilowatts per hour! The wind energy in Belarus isn’t growing very quickly at all because investors are having problems in the Republic of Belarus, so they can not afford to pay for more wind farms. In Belarus there are only two types of turbines existing. The government of Belarus has made a program so they can try to get the wind energy sector to develop faster, between the years of 2008 and 2014. Wind is renewable. This means it is, and always will be around, and will never run out. Wind is always around so if you have enough wind where you live, it is possible there is a wind farm around, like in Belarus.

  9. The Dnieper River The Dnieper River is a river that crosses Belarus, Ukraine, and Russia, and is 2,290 kilometers long! That’s HUGE! The UNDP’s regional GEF project has helped Belarus and other countries make approaches that will help them manage the environment around the river so none of the plants, or animals, will became extinct. The drinking water from the river is used carefully because now 40% of the water that is taken does not meet the requirements needed. This is the reason why many plant, and animal species are becoming extinct in Ukraine, Russia, and Belarus. Back to Room 1

Belarus used 2.24 Mtoe in 2010, and they believe that about 3.10 Mtoe will be used in the year of 2012. Wood energy can be used anywhere around the world.
