What is Wind Energy?
Wind is simple air in motion. It is caused by the uneven heating of the earth’s surface by the sun. Since the earth’s surface is made of very different types of land and water, it absorbs the sun’s heat at different rates.
During the day, land absorbs the heat quickly and thus the air above the land heats up more quickly than the air over water. The warm air over the land expands and rises, and the heavier, cooler air rushes in to take its place, creating winds. At night, the winds are reversed because the land cools down faster and thus air over the land cools more rapidly than air over water.
In the same way, the large atmospheric winds that circle the earth are created because the land near the earth’s equator is heated more by the sun than the land near the North and South Poles. The forced carried by the moving wind is converted into mechanical energy by placing wings of a turbine in the path of the moving wind, this mechanical energy is then used to generate electricity in an electrical generator.
