Abstract

There are many types of energy used across the globe today; one such energy source that is often overlooked is wind power. Wind power is made from air flow and is collected by wind turbines that are placed in especially windy areas. These machines take the wind or air power and use it to create energy. The power of wind has been used for centuries to propel ships across water, and is now being used to create electricity using a clean and renewable energy source. This documentary examines the mechanics and functions of wind power in our world today. How wind power works, how it began, and how it is now being collected and distributed are all topics that will be discussed. Furthermore, this video presents the current debate regarding the benefits and limitations of wind power from economic and environmental standpoints.
