    Pune / Davos: Tulsi Tanti, Chairman, Suzlon Group - the world's fifth leading wind turbine maker - today presented his publication 'Lets Save the Planet' at the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos. Developed in association with The Climate Group, 'Let's Save the Planet' discusses the opportunities for sustainable development through energy efficient and economically profitable business models.

    The document outlines the severe threat of climate change and offers a solution through innovative energy usage and competitive green solutions.

    Commenting on the publication, Tulsi Tanti said: "Climate change offers us several avenues for sustainable growth. It is a myth that energy efficiency and green development have to be costly and disruptive. Through this publication I wish to highlight the possibility of a safe and secure tomorrow which lies well within our reach."

    "I would specially like to thank The Climate Group for the support they have extended in producing this document. I urge you all to join their commendable efforts in bringing about a 'Clean Revolution'."

    Mark Kenber, CEO of The Climate Group, said: "Tulsi Tanti is a true pioneer of The Clean Revolution, showing how confronting the global climate challenge goes hand-in-hand with business success and creating lasting prosperity. In Let's Save the Planet, he lays out a set of small but significant steps to take clean technologies to scale and avoid severe environmental damage to the world's economy. I commend it to all those attending this year's World Economic Forum in Davos."

    Determining the true cost of energy, and forming alliances between governments, private sector and civil society are essential for securing sustainable future energy needs. The solution outlined in the document requires commitment to legally binding emissions caps, as well as private sector initiatives for sustainable and profitable business models.

    The astonishingly high potential of modern day renewable energy is highlighted: while oil and conventional gas may peak between 150-160 years, wind and solar alone has over one million GW of estimated potential power capacity, which can fulfill electricity needs for many centuries.
