“As yet, the wind is an untamed, and unharnessed force; and quite possibly one of the greatest discoveries hereafter to be made, will be the taming, and harnessing of the wind.”

(Abraham Lincoln, 1860)

Wind energy

Wind energy is an energy source that depends on wind. The sun heats the Earth unevenly, creating areas of different temperatures and atmospheric pressure throughout the planet. From these differences in pressure derive the movements of the air, called wind. The term wind energy refers, therefore, to the transformation of the kinetic energy of wind into mechanical energy, through the exploitation of this energy by aerodynamic blades.

It is undoubtedly one of the most consumed renewable energies in the world: inexhaustible and efficient, with a high yield, available to people in a natural way, it is increasingly advancing in almost all countries of the world. Wind energy is renewable energy that does not require any fuel, does not create greenhouse gases, does not produce toxic or radioactive waste. By combating climate change, it contributes in the long term to maintaining the biodiversity of natural environments.

The advantages of wind power

The main advantages of wind energy can be summarised as follows:

It is 100% natural, but also sustainable and renewable: since it is produced by wind, it eliminates the risks associated with electricity shortages, unlike conventional fuel-based energies;
It respects nature and saves from environmental pollution: it has no harmful effects on air quality, does not pollute water (no discharge into the aquatic environment), does not pollute the soil (no soot or ash);
It saves money as it does not require the use of fuel;
It reduces energy consumption in winter, when the wind blows heavily.
