Wind powers only about 3.7 percent of worldwide energy consumption today, but global wind power capacity is increasing rapidly–about 20 percent a year.
Most of the energy captured by large wind farms originates higher up in the atmosphere and is transported down to the surface where the turbines may extract this energy.
If European countries cooperated better in the field of wind energy, wind power output would fluctuate less.
Scientists have teamed up to find a way to optimize wind power for use, even when it’s not blowing.
There has been a massive boom in wind power capacity both in Europe and worldwide.
The K2 Wind Facility is a 270 MW wind power facility is located in the Township of Ashfield-Colborne-Wawanosh (ACW) and commenced commercial operations in June 2015.
