This energy is derived from the use of wind gusts that drive turbines to produce electricity.
* Wind energy is a non-expendable energy source.
Economic feasibility is determined by the following variables:
The location of the turbine in relation to the wind and to the surrounding settlements and the winds regime in the area.
In other words, the big disadvantage stems from the fact that the wind flow is neither fixed nor always with the required intensity.
Few areas are inhabited on Earth, where there is a constant wind regime that is sufficient to generate permanent energy.
The main economic problem with the use of wind energy is the high initial investment in these power plants.
Most of the use of this energy is in Europe, in countries such as Germany and Denmark.
Wind farms were also established in the United States, most of them in California and Hawaii.
In the Middle East, this energy has also been used in countries such as Egypt, Morocco and Turkey.
The future use of wind energy seems promising for the following reasons:
A. Economic competitiveness versus other methods of generating electricity.
B. An increase in global demand for electricity and a global policy of switching to the use of non-polluting energies.
third. Reducing dependence on imports of thermal energy sources (oil, coal, gas).
