Wind energy is utilized to generate electricity by using the energy that is the kinetic form produced by the air in motion. It can easily be transformed into electrical energy utilizing wind turbines or wind energy conversion systems. Firstly, Wind hits the blades of the turbines, allowing them to rotate and meanwhile turn the turbine that is connected to them.
How This Wind Energy Technology Actually Works?
Wind turbines actually work on the same principle that permits airplanes to fly in the air. The wind does not push the blades, but passes over them. As the blades of a wind turbine turn their positions, kinetic energy of the wind is converted into mechanical energy easily, that is then transmitted through the shaft of the drive turning towards electrical generator existing in the nacelle.
From old Holland to ranches in the US, windmills have been utilized for siphoning water or pounding grain. Today, the windmills cutting edge same – a breeze turbine – can utilize the breeze energy to create power. Wind turbines, similar to windmills, are mounted on a pinnacle to catch the most energy.
Dutch Trains Powered By Wind Energy Technology:
The national railway company, NS, said that 10% Dutch electric trains are powered by wind energy. Furthermore, an increase in the number of wind farms across the country and off the coast of the Netherlands had helped NS achieve its aim.
Eneco and NS held a meeting on a joint website and said that nearly around 600,000 passengers daily are “the first in the world” feels good to travel and give thanks to wind energy technology and also gives thanks to NS for operating about 5700 train trips in a day, and 600000 passengers travel without suffering any kind of problem.
This goal of powering trains by using wind energy was achieved by having the partnership with Eneco that is a Dutch sustainable energy supplier.

Advantages Of Wind Power
☆ Wind power is not so expensive, its cost is low
☆ It is helpful for creating more jobs
☆ Wind permits U.S. industry growth and competitiveness
☆ It is the best source of clean energy
☆ Wind is the best domestic source of energy
☆ It is highly sustainable & renewable source of energy
☆ Wind turbines can easily be built upon already existing farms or ranches
Disadvantages Of Wind Energy:
☆It is the cause of more noise pollution
☆It has the need for high capital investment
☆It can also reduce the local population of birds
☆A massive portion of land is required for the installation
☆It impacts visually
The company said that the only 1 windmill that is running for an hour can power a train for 120 miles. From 2000, it is the biggest source of new renewable power generation added in the United States, along with more than 82GW already installed across 41 states. The wind has the capacity to facilitate more than 600,000 jobs in the USA by 2050. Many other initiatives have been taken already this year for reducing and reverse the damage to the environment. It is calculated that these renewables will account for about 75% of new US electricity generating capacity in 2022.
Moving from petroleum derivatives to renewables is the solitary way we can allow a future for the following ages and the planet generally. Presently we have a mind-blowing freedom to utilize wind as a free and endlessly accessible fountain of energy without dirtying emanations,” said Taras Vodyanyy, President of Sirocco Energy. Vodyanyy said the expenses of wind energy are low: “It is created locally; the innovation is continually advancing. That makes it one of the quickest developing sources of clean energy in the globe today.”
