The power of the wind has been used for centuries khổng lồ directly drive various machines khổng lồ perkhung such tasks as grinding wheat or pumping water. Recently, however, the wind has joined other natural forces such as water and steam as a viable method of generating electriđô thị.Traditional means of electrithành phố generation using coal or oil-fueled plants have sầu two major drawbacks; they pollute the environment & the fuels they use are inefficient & non-renewable. In response to lớn growing environmental awareness, there have sầu been calls for a greener alternative. Nuclear power, while more efficient and less polluting, is seen by many people as unacceptable, because of the danger of accidents such as those that happened at Chernobyl or Three Mile Islvà. Wind power, however, is clean, renewable &, with modern advances, surprisingly efficient.In the 1970s Britain was in the forefront of research into lớn wind power. The interest in wind diminished in the 1980s due lớn cheap North Sea oil, a strong pro-nuclear lobby và pricing structures that made it uneconomical to lớn mix up wind farms. Britain, the windiest country in Europe, had lớn wait until 1991 for its first wind farm. Located at Delabole in Cornwall, the farm was originally the idea of locals who opposed the construction of a nuclear power plant nearby and decided khổng lồ set up a private company to lớn generate power for the area using the wind. They had to lớn fight opposition from local government & other local residents, who thought the turbines would be noisy and might interfere with television signals, but eventually, after showing local officials working wind farms in Denmark, they won & now there are 10 huge trắng wind turbines on the Delabole hills.It is in Germany và Denmark that the greademo advances in wind power have come. Germany alone produces half of the wind generated electricity in Europe. Every year Germany adds 400 Megawatts (Mw) of capađô thị. In 2000 alone capacity expanded by 1669 Mw. Denmark now produces 30% of its electriđô thị from wind power and this is predicted to lớn rise to 50% by 2010. Both countries have encouraged this growth by “fixed feed tariffs” which guarantee a good price for private wind power operators.The UK is catching up và the government has mix a target 10% of all electricity to lớn come from renewable sources by 2010, half of this khổng lồ be from wind power. The 900 wind turbines in operation generate 400Mw of electricity & to meet the target roughly 400Mw will need to be added each year. With the advances in công nghệ, this is technically possible. Each turbine can now produce 400 Kilowatts (KW) compared lớn only 70 KW at the start of the 1980s. It will, however, need help from the government. This is being done by offering financial support & giving private power companies targets to lớn meet.Because many people feel wind farms spoil the view &, also, because the wind is stronger at sea, many wind farms are now being built offshore. They are usually built a few kilometres off the coast in shallow water. The construction và maintenance costs are higher, but electricity output is higher. The first in Britain was built in 2000 at Blyth, north of Newcastle, và was the largest in the world until May 2001, when a đôi mươi turbine farm was opened at Middelgruden off Copenhagene. There are plans lớn construct up to lớn 18 more in the UK by 2010. Together they will produce 800 Mw of electriđô thị annually.The use of wind power is far less advanced in the USA. Only .5% of America’s power comes from the wind, although it is estimated that this could be increased khổng lồ as high as 12% with no changes khổng lồ the power grid. However, there is an increased interest in wind power. There are plans to build a huge offshore wind farm off the coast of Cape Cod on the North East seaboard. The farm will take up over 25 square miles, have sầu 170 turbines và produce 420Mw at a cost of $600m. If constructed, it will be the world’s second biggest wind farm, after the 520Mw farm planned in Irelvà.
