At a time where sustainable development is increasingly important, one of the alternative to generate electricity while reducing the use of fossil fuels is wind energy.
Most wind energy comes from turbines that can be as tall as a 20-story building and have three 200-foot (60-meter)-long blades. The wind spins the blades, which turn a shaft connected to a generator that produces electricity. The wind energy industry is booming. Thanks to global efforts to combat climate change, such as the Paris Agreement, renewable energy is seeing a boom in growth, with wind energy leading the way.
Let’s look at these key points:
💪 Worldwide wind power capacity reached in 2019 is estimated by 597 GW.
🇨🇳 China has the most important wind power capacity.
🌍 6% of the global electricity demand can be covered by all the wind turbines installed by this year.
