  • Wind can help solve energy crisis

    Since it became a viable energy resource around 20 years ago, wind power has emerged as a leading renewable technology. At the end of 2006 the worldwide capacity of all wind turbines was close to 75 gigawatts, which represents around one percent of all electricity use in the world. Three quarters of that wind power usage is currently based in Europe. The Danes lead the way with nearly 20 percent ...
