Energy is the ability to transform or to set something in motion. For the economy and technology, energy is a natural resource with the various elements associated with allowing to use it industrially.
Wind power, meanwhile, is an adjective that relates to what belongs or which is relative to the wind (because Aeolus is the God of the winds in classical mythology). Means wind air flow which occurs naturally in the atmosphere.
These concepts to refer to wind energy, which is energy obtained from the wind. It is a type of kinetic energy produced by the effect of the air currents.
This energy, like many others, can be transformed into various ways to be useful in human activities. With wind energy, it is possible to produce electricity or impulse engines, for example.
Wind energy already generates more than 2% of the electricity consumed in the world. Experts recommend the distribution of wind energy by being a resource abundant, renewable and clean, not polluting and helping to replace fossil fuels.
The largest producer of wind energy in the world are the USA, followed by the Germany, China, the Spain and the India. In Latin America, the main producer is the Brazil.
Among the aspects contrary to the adoption of wind power, there are worth mentioning the lack of certainty about the existence of wind, forcing to have other types of energy production that are complementary and that enable complete possible shortages.
