Description: World Capacity for Wind Power- Solar energy produces the large-scale motion of the atmosphere and winds, Differential heating causes minor fluctuations, Coriolis acceleration, World Energy Council estimated 20,000 TWh/yr in potential wind power. Advantages of Wind Power- After installation, only cost is maintenance, Wind is renewable, Available everywhere to some extent, No pollution, Simple designs, Supply of wind energy cannot be controlled by anyone (no political maneuvering), Wind farms make it profitable.
