1. What is wind power?

Wind power (energía eólica in Spanish) is the energy obtained from the air currents, which has been used by humans since ancient times to move sailboats or operate windmills to grind wheat. In both cases the kinetic energy of the wind has been transformed into mechanical energy. In the case of the production of electricity, mechanical energy is transformed into electrical energy through the wind power process.

The sun’s rays heat the atmosphere in a non-uniform way, so the air temperature is different between one area and another. Hot air tends to rise and displace cold air, which lowers to replace it. The resultant of this movement are the air currents that we have called winds. The wind has a mass and when it moves it acquires kinetic energy, which, through the wind process, is captured, transformed into mechanical energy and finally into electricity. All this is done by an artifact called a wind turbine.

Wind Power, unlimited, clean and efficient

The main objective of the Paris Agreement is to limit the increase in global temperature to no more than 2°C, from its pre-industrial level, by the end of this century. To achieve this key objective, greenhouse gas emissions must be reduced until they are completely eradicated. Through the premise “Zero fossil fuels” is intended to replace oil, coal, natural gas and gas oil for renewable and clean energy, such as solar energy, electric cars and wind energy…



Wind Power: clean, renewable and natural

Wind energy is the ability to obtain an effect from wind or air currents and convert it into electrical energy. Wind energy is clean, renewable and natural, so it goes in the direction of the Paris Agreement and the fight against global warming and climate change. Wind energy, solar energy and lithium batteries from electric cars are the main weapons available to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The wind process is carried out by means of a wind turbine…
