Wind power

In the world 80% of the energy used is produced by burning fossil fuels, including oil, coal, natural gas.
Plants using fossil fuels generate polluting gases that damage the environment. In recent years to protect the environment and to compensate for the growing demand for energy, the states of the world have pledged to pursue a model of sustainable development, including the exploitation of the kinetic energy produced by the wind.
The need to find alternative sources of energy spread due to the economic crisis of 1973 when the Arab Countries increased oil prices which caused, among other things, the increase in the price of electricity, consequently increased among United exhaustibility awareness of fossil fuels and the need of seeking alternative and renewable resources.
By way of example, a wind power plant consists of onshore wind turbines 30 300 kW each in an area where the wind is blowing at a speed of about 25 km / h can produce 20milioni kWh per year, or the needs of about 7000 families. A central coal to achieve the same result would release the air 22mila tons of carbon dioxide, 125 tons of sulfur dioxide and 43 tons of nitrogen oxide.
