Introduction to Wind Energy



Wind energy has quickly emerged as the renewable energy source of choice.

As the fastest-growing source of energy worldwide, wind power is a major contributor to global energy production as governments, communities, businesses, and individuals look to decrease their dependency on unsustainable energy sources while reducing the cost of energy.

Embraced by more than 90 countries and growing at an annual rate greater than 25 percent each year, wind power will remain a reliable source of energy for both utilities and distributed wind initiatives for generations to come.
