Transcript of wind power

Timeline: How wind Energy developed 1887 1980 2008 0 + - = 9 8 7 1 2 3 4 5 6 c what is Wind? Wind is produced as a result of giant currents in the earth's atmosphere, which are created by heat energy from the sun. This means, as long as the Sun exists, wind will too. What is Wind power? Wind power is a useful source of energy that is converted from wind energy. Wind power is a cheap and plentiful energy source. This Video is About... *wind turbines, and how they function and other info advantages and disadvantages
of wind energy *it's a renewable
energy source By... Wind: The future of renewable
energy Here are the answers
to the following questions we were given: In the past, wind power was used for transportation; wind power is used to create a resourceful energy source. What is it used for? 1927 Minneapolis, US
Joe and Marcellus Jacobs opened "the Jacobs Wind factory", which mead wind turbine generators. The generators are used on farms to charge batteries and power lighting. July 1887, Glasgow, Scotland 1927 2008 UK *Avielle Hamilton *Jillian Rees *Zaynah Raheel hi! hi! how is electricity generated
by wind? what sort of area does
wind energy have to be located in and why? wind energy has to be located
in a windy area, so that the wind turbines can collect a lot of energy for our use. *it's a eco-friendly
way of energy *it costs a lot of money *the wind might stop
for a while and that might be inconvenient for people Thank you for
The first windmill was built by Professor James Blyth of Anderson's College. The professor experimented with three different turbine designs, the last of which is said to have powered his Scottish home for 25 years.
The world's first windfarm, holding 20 turbines was built in New Hampshire. The windfarm however, was a failure because the turbines broke down and the developers overestimate the wind resource. 1980 New Hampshire, US

The UK government had a target to increase the amount of electricity to 20% by 2020 as part of efforts to reduce greenhouse gas.
There are currently 186 operational windfarms in the UK (both onshore and offshore) with 2,120 turbines creating enough energy to power 1,523,052 homes and saving 6,156,175 tonnes of carbon. hi!
