Wind energy consists of using the kinetic energy from the wind to move the blades of a wind turbine and produce electricity. People have used wind energy for centuries, from the small windmills used to grind grain to the powerful modern wind turbines used to provide electricity.
Wind energy is a renewable source: it is inexhaustible, non-polluting, and reduces the greenhouse gas emissions that cause global warming. It also helps reduce energy imports and creates wealth and jobs at local level.
Wind energy is the most efficient and popular renewable energy source at present. It has expanded gradually in recent years, leading to considerable demand for this type of energy all over the world.
There are various factors driving growth in the wind sector:
Wind energy's rising competitiveness.
Growing electricity demand worldwide.
Rising costs and instability in the fossil fuel market.
Countries' commitment to contribute to sustainable development.
Efforts to combat climate change and global warming.
