Aeolus, the ancient god of winds: it is from him that we get the name for energy produced by moving air. In certain places, the wind blows with such consistency and intensity that it merits the installation of huge rotating blades, which, through a generator, turn this force of nature into electricity. If the wind energy market maintains its current trend, in 2040 we could produce as much as 7% of the world’s energy from this renewable source, focusing on small and medium wind farms. Criticisms concern the aesthetic intrusiveness of the turbine, the necessary infrastructure for installation and the alleged damage to local avifauna.
