Wind power is one of the oldest power sources used by humans and today is the most established and efficient renewable energy source.
FREMONT, CA: Wind will become the electricity generation leader ahead of gas and nuclear by 2025 at the latest, says the report. Across the EU, wind power is the largest renewable source delivering 11.1 percent of the bloc's electricity creation. However, this is much less than nuclear and natural gas, which presently holds the lion's share. Solar accounts for only 3.7 percent of the bloc's electricity generation. The EU has evolved as a leader in offshore wind technology that has attracted significant financial investors, the IEA noted in the latest energy policy review of the region. Investments in offshore wind farms in the North and Baltic Seas have made the EU a global pioneer.
Using the wind is one of the oldest methods of producing energy. Since ancient times man has utilized the help of windmills to grind the harvest and to pump water. With electricity at the end of the nineteenth century, the prototypes of advanced wind turbines were built, harnessing technology based on the classical windmill. Since then, it has been a long process until wind energy was accepted as a commercially sound way to generate energy. Modern wind energy stations increasingly create a major proportion of global energy. Germany is one of the significant wind energy markets, with the second-largest amount of deployed wind power capacity after the USA. With its continuously evolving export volume, the wind energy industry has become an essential global growth market and economic factor.
International climate and environmental experts confirm that the planet's atmosphere is warming up and that people are running short of resources. Furthermore, all power stations developed in the 60s or 70s will soon have to be replaced. Political and economic demands have changed dramatically since those stations were created; global environmental issues can no longer be ignored. International environmental treaties establish legally binding commitments for the reduction of greenhouse gas in the atmosphere, and industrialized countries agreed to mitigate their collective GHG emissions. International, standardized applications for renewable power, regardless of national regulations or climate conditions, are more likely to be put into place. The wind power industry's future looks optimistic.
