Wind Power

Exploring Energy Technology

Farms of massive wind turbines, often framed by majestic mountains or with their bases lapped by ocean waves, have become one of the most recognizable images of alternative energy. This book covers the history of wind power, today's advanced turbines and wind farms, and the advantages and disadvantages of this fast-growing energy technology. It even presents a substantive but easy-to-understand explanation of how and where winds form. It's a great resource for the study of science and technology, as well as those curious about the possible solutions to the problems arising from the global consumption of fossil fuels.
