Exploring Wind Energy

 National Energy Education Development
Description: Exploring Wind Energy:- What Makes Wind: The sun shines on land and water. Land heats up faster than water. Warm air over the land rises. cool air over the water moves in. Clean, zero emissions-NOx, SO2, CO, CO2 - Air quality, water quality- Climate change, Reduce fossil fuel dependence - Energy independence - Domestic energy—national security. Renewable-No fuel-price volatility. US Electricity Generation from Non-Hydro Renewables.
