Traditional energy sources are not very safe, negatively affect the environment. In nature, there are natural resources that are called renewable, and they allow you to get a sufficient amount of energy resources. One of these wealth is the wind. As a result, the processing of air masses can be obtained by one of the forms of energy:
This energy can be used in everyday life for various needs. Typically, wind generators, sails and windmills are used to convert wind.
Features of wind energy
Global changes are currently taking place in the energy sector. Humanity was aware of the danger of nuclear, atomic and hydropower, and now the development of stations are underway, which use renewable energy sources. According to experts, by 2020 at least 20% of the total number of energy resources of renewable sources will be the energy obtained by wind.
The benefits of wind energy are as follows:
This is just a small list of advantages of using wind energy. It is worth considering that it is forbidden to install windmills near settlements, so they can often be found on the open landscapes of the steppes and fields. As a result, certain territories will be absolutely unsuitable for living people. Experts also note that during the mass operation of windmills, some climatic changes will occur. For example, due to changes in air masses, the climate can become dry.
The prospects of wind energy
Despite the tremendous benefit of the energy of the wind, the environmental friendliness of wind energy, it is too early to talk about the mass construction of wind parks. Among the countries that already use this source of energy, it is worth calling the United States, Denmark, Germany, Spain, India, Italy, Great Britain, China, the Netherlands and Japan. In other countries, wind energy is used, but on a smaller scale, the wind energy is only developing, but this is a promising direction of the economy, which will bring not only financial benefits, but will also help reduce the negative impact on the ecology.
