Wind Energy

• Wind power is the conversion of wind energy into electricity, using wind turbines

• At the end of 2007, the worldwide capacity of wind-powered generators was 94.1 gigawatts. Although wind produces only about 1% of world-wide electricity use, it is growing rapidly, increasing more than fivefold globally between 2000 and 2007

• Large scale wind farms are typically connected to the local electric power transmission network, with smaller turbines being used to provide electricity to isolated locations

• Smaller turbines can be used to provide electricity to isolated locations www.photolibrary.

• Wind energy as a power source is a viable alternative to fossil fuels, as it is plentiful, renewable, widely distributed, clean, and produces lower greenhouse gas emissions

• New research is underway to capture altitude wind which is more constant and would provide a continuous unlimited supply of clean energy.
