For our present and future power supply, the wind power is crucial. Both large wind farms and decentralized individual wind turbines have become reliable energy suppliers.
Wind energy has been used since ancient times to make energy from the environment available for technical purposes.
On good sites, competitiveness with conventional thermal power plants has been achieved years ago. At the end of 2014, wind turbines with a total capacity of 369.6 GW were installed worldwide.
Wind energy is one of the greenest, cleanest and safest energy resource, and it is counted among the most environmentally friendly forms of energy production. Compared to the environmental impact of fossil energy, the impacts ofwind energy are negligible.
Like other renewable energy sources, the supply of wind energy is infinite.
