Wind Energy

Harnessing the Wind

Wind power is the use of air flow through wind turbines to mechanically power generators for electricity. Wind power, as an alternative to burning fossil fuels, is plentiful, renewable, widely distributed, clean, produces no greenhouse gas emissions during operation, and uses little land. The net effects on the environment are far less problematic than those of nonrenewable power sources.  Compared with other low carbon power sources, wind turbines have some of the lowest global warming potential per unit of electrical energy generated.

 

As of 2015, Denmark generates 40% of its electricity from wind, and at least 83 other countries around the world are using wind power to supply their electricity grids. In 2014, global wind power capacity expanded 16% to 369,553 MW. Yearly wind energy production is also growing rapidly and has reached around 4% of worldwide electricity usage, 11.4% in the EU.

Quick Case Study

Our partners built a $37 million wind farm in South Dakota which was featured on a story for CNBC with Charles Hayes.  Energy3 International members provided financing and development services for this large wind project.
