Wind is a
form of solar energy. Winds are caused by the uneven heating of the
atmosphere by the sun, the irregularities of the earth's surface, and
rotation of the earth. Wind flow patterns are modified by the earth's
terrain, bodies of water, and vegetation. Humans use this wind flow, or
motion energy, for many purposes: sailing, flying a kite, and even
The terms wind energy or
wind power describe the process by which the wind is used to generate
mechanical power or electricity. Wind turbines convert the kinetic
energy in the wind into mechanical power. This mechanical power can be
used for specific tasks (such as grinding grain or pumping water) or a
generator can convert this mechanical power into electricity.
