Like solar, wind energy does not produce climate-changing emissions. Also like solar, the feasibility of wind energy depends on location and weather. I personally think windmills are beautiful and quiet, especially compared with some of the other things we build. Not everyone agrees, so wind energy is susceptible to the "not in my backyard" argument. In this module, you will: evaluate current technologies to produce energy from wind; and identify future directions for economically sustainable wind energy.
“When the wind changes directions, there are those who build walls and those who build windmills.” – Chinese proverb
