Abstract

Winds of Change People witness wind power every day, in every part of the globe, whether only in noticing the annoying way it musses hair or in the chaotic destruction of wind storms. However, the general populace often fails to understand how wind occurs or how they can harness the resource for energy. Wind power utilization has been in practice for centuries, though new changes are on the horizon. Researchers and engineers have made rapid advancements in the technologies to convert wind to energy and to eliminate any problems it could pose during the past few decades. In fact, wind power is becoming one of the most affordable sources of renewable energy, and has very few, if any, ill effects on the environment. This presentation will address the cause of wind, its ability to be used as an energy source, and the effect it has on its consumers.
