What is wind energy?

Wind Energy is the most mature and developed renewable energy. It generates electricity through wind, by using the kinetic energy produced by the effect of air currents. It is a source of clean and renewable energy, which reduces the emission of greenhouse effect gases and preserves the environment.

Wind power has been used since antiquity to move boats powered by sails or to operate the machinery of mills to move their blades. Since the early twentieth century, it produces energy through wind turbines. The wind drives a propeller and through a mechanical system, it rotates the rotor of a generator that produces electricity.

Wind turbines are often grouped together in wind farms to make better use of energy, reducing environmental impact. The machines have a lifespan of twenty years.
