Wind Power: Our Top Facts

shutterstock_110700254As the world’s resources of non-renewable energies are fast depleting, there is growing interest and research into renewable sources. One of the fastest growing alternatives is wind power, which happens to be one of the cleanest and safest methods of generating electricity.

Wind is basically the movement of air between high and low pressure areas. It is actually caused by uneven heating of the earth (from the sun), which results in hot air rising and cool air flowing as a consequence. Wind power is generally harnessed by way of turbines, which capture the wind and turn it into rotational energy. This is subsequently turned into electricity by utilising a generator.

Here are some facts on Hydro Energy:

First the Science:

Energy FactsWhen energy is generated by mechanical means, a magnet is moved inside a coil of wire and an electric current is produced. In a commercial power station this is done on a large scale – giant electro-magnets are spun inside huge coils of conductor.
