Wind Energy

Wind energy is a renewable energy sources. Your source to learn accurate information on wind energy; articles, facts, news, opinions, tips and analysis on wind energy resources and wind energy technologies; wind energy facts, wind energy systems, wind turbines, home wind turbines.

United States is one of the leading countries in the installation of Wind Energy farms for the generation of electricity. More than 20% of the world’s wind power capacity comes from US making it the second largest wind power producer in the world, behind China.

Wind is free, so why don’t we produce our own electricity from our very own home wind turbine. Home wind turbines (also known as residential wind turbines, domestic wind turbines or small wind turbines) harness the power of the wind

Over the last decade there has been an enormous evolution in the wind energy (wind power) technology. The wind turbine  manufacturers are now developing highly efficient wind turbines both for onshore and offshore use

Many countries have developed aggressive plans to invest in Wind Power. As a result Wind Power is becoming a rapidly evolving technology with many interesting facts. The following interesting facts about wind power have been recorded until 2011.

A wind turbine is the main element of a wind farm and is used for the production of wind energy. Since the commercial deployment of the first wind turbine in the 1980s, there has been a tremendous improvement in their efficiency, capacity and design characteristics.

Wind energy is the conversion of the kinetic energy of the wind, by the use of wind turbines, into mechanical energy which is then converted into electricity.
