Wind Energy


Conversion of wind energy into a useful form such as electricity is referred to as wind power.

This energy is directly used in wind mills to crush grains or to pump water. Towards the end of the year 2007, about 94.1 gigawatts was the standard capacity of wind powered generators, across the globe. This measures about 19 percent of total production of electricity in Denmark, 6 percent in Portugal and Spain. The generation of wind power increased more than five fold between the period of 2000 and 2007, all across the globe.

Wind power is produced in large wind farms efficiently connected to electrical grids and in turbines to facilitate providence of electricity to isolated locations.

Wind energy is found in abundance. It is a renewable type of energy distributed widely and works towards minimizing the effects of green house gas emissions during its’ displacing of fossil-fuel-derived electricity. There is absolutely no problem that arises due to intermittency of wind while using wind power to supply a low amount of total demand.

However, it tends to result in extra costs when wind is used for a huge proportion of demand.
