  • Renewable Energy Sources Like Wind Power
    522 words
    For many years, people have been harnessing the power of wind. Wind propelled boats down water and simple windmills were used to pump water and grind grain. But credit goes to the Dutch who refined windmills so that they could drain swamps and lakes, and in the 19th century, settlers took this concept with them to the New World. There, windmills were used to pump water for farms and ranches, and later to generate electricity for homes and industry purposes. Industrialization caused a decrease in...

  • Alternate Forms Of Energy And Fuel
    1,076 words
    Alternative Fuels This day in age, one of the world's main concerns is energy. Currently, we rely on petroleum to run our cars, and household central heat, and electricity in our homes. Petroleum is not only limited, but it is also dirtying up the world's air, and depleting the ozone layer as it is burned. Alternative fuels are one of the worlds most talked about issues, and many solutions have been brought forth, yet none of them have been sophisticatedly acted upon. Through the list of pros an...
  • World's Wind Energy
    308 words
    Alternative Energy The United States depends on fossil fuels, like oil and coal, for energy. According to experts these sources will exhaust by the year 2050. Fossil fuels also pollute the environment. So we need to search for alternative energy sources which are reliable and renewable. Wind power is the force of the wind harnessed by windmills and wind turbines that convert it into electricity. Because wind is a clean and renewable source of energy, modern wind turbines are being installed in m...
  • Wind Energy
    596 words
    For human development to continue, we will ultimately need to find sources of renewable or virtually inexhaustible energy. It's difficult to imagine this, but even if we find several hundred or even thousand years of coal and natural gas supplies, what will humans do for the next 250,000 years or so after they are depleted? Even the most apparently 'inexhaustible's sources like fusion involve the generation of large amounts of waste heat -- enough to place damaging stress on even a robust ecosys...
  • Wind Turbine Generators
    3,538 words
    Introduction. Harnessing the natural power of the wind is by no means a new concept. Asides from sailing, wind power has been utilised for many thousands of years, principally for agricultural purposes. Basic windmills are thought to have been used in Persia (now Iran) as early as the 7th century AD. Their ability to make use of otherwise untapped energy sources without the needs and costs of other alternatives, ensured that they remained the machines of preference in several industries througho...
  • Wind Power An Alternative Energy Source
    1,127 words
    WIND POWER AN ALTERNATIVE ENERGY SOURCE " They " re farming a different crop in Wyoming County these days-the wind. Atop a hill in this little town - population 729 - are 10 windmills that are expected to produce enough electricity each year to provide power for 1,700 homes. It's not hard to see what this piece of the future looks like". (Ploetz, A 1) Wind power was developed as a major alternative energy source during the 1970's. The interest in finding alternative energy sources has grown trem...

  • Turbines Use Wind Energy
    1,854 words
    What is Wind Energy? Wind Energy is defined as an alternate source of generating electricity. Wind Energy is energy obtained from moving air. The motion of wind results from the heating and cooling of the earth. Wind power is used from a wind turbine, and electricity is generated by its magnetic fields. It is normally turned into useful energy by the action of wind currents on moving surfaces, such as, the sails of a ship, or the blades of a wind turbine. Wind Energy is the fastest growing energ...
  • Energy From Windmills
    425 words
    The Alternate Energy Sources WINDMILLS The reason why I chose to do a project on windmills is because I would always drive out to Palm Springs and I would see these huge thing's that looked like something out of a star wars movie. When I got closer to them I realized what they were. They were windmills. Once I knew what they were I wanted to know what they did, my mom told me that they provide energy. Windmills are made of parts such as the rooter electric generator, speed control system and the...
  • Maximum Efficiency At Different Wind Speeds
    1,212 words
    Alternate Sources Of Electri. Essay, Research Paper Alternate Sources of Electricity: Wind Power Wind is created from an unequal heating of the earths atmosphere therefore wind is an indirect form of solar energy. Convection currents, which occur due to the fact that warm air rises and cooler air drops, produces this cycle of air or wind. Some of the suns energy directly heats the air but mostly the heat is transferred form the earth into the atmosphere. Between 1 – 2% of the solar radiati...
