Wind power is currently the most cost efficient source of large-scale renewable energy. It involves generating electricity from the naturally occurring power of the wind. Wind turbines capture wind energy within the area swept by their blades. The spinning blades drive an electrical generator that produces electricity for export to the grid.
Technological advances in the sector mean that wind turbines are now larger, more efficient, quieter, and make use of more intelligent technology. Rotor diameters and hub heights have increased to capture more energy per turbine, these advancements in technology mean that fewer turbines are needed to produce the same energy, giving wind farms increasingly adaptive capabilities.
Powering a cleaner future
• 18 – 20 MWh of electricity, powering 4300 homes
• 10,000 tonnes of CO2 abatement
• The equivalent of planting 164,000 trees or removing 4200 cars from the roads
