This essay focuses on Wind Energy in an environment. growing at staggering rates; by the year 2050, global power consumption is expected to double
We live in the 21st century, and the human population is growing at staggering rates; by the year 2050, global power consumption is expect to double due to the increased uptake of green hydrogen and electrification. This is one of the results of several polls and forecasts of global energy consumption,
which is project to rise from 19 percent today to up to 30 percent by the half-century (Energy Information Administration, 2019). By 2050, global manufacturing energy demand is forecast to hit 315 quadrillion British thermal units (Energy Information Administration, 2019).
Wind as a Global Power Consumption
green energy innovations, and it holds promise for fulfilling the world’s energy needs. Wind energy use has increased in recent decades as a result of technological advances that have reduced the costs of constructing wind power stations to affordable levels to all the members of society. According to a recent report on wind energy, offshore and onshore wind generation ability has risen by a factor of 80 in the last two decades, allowing gigawatt demand to leap from 7.5 GW in 1997 to 564 GW by the end of 2018. (International Renewable Energy Agency, 2019). Remote locations are the best to generate wind power. According to the statistics, wind energy has delivered relief to the national electric grid. Wind energy, as a source of green energy, provides hope for long-term sustainability for both current and future generations
Since wind energy is a completely natural form of energy, only minor technological advancements are need to enhance it. It, therefore, does not necessitate a large number of human capital. However, since it is a pure energy stream, it has a right to be prioritized. Wind power generation technology has been around for a long time. The first appeared more than a century ago, and has progressed to satisfy global electricity demand. Engineers have been working diligently to extract energy from wind energy. Produce power since the advent of the electric motor in the 1830s. The first attempts to produce
power from wind energy were make in the United Kingdom and the Unite States in 1887 and 1888, respectively (Owens, 2019). Even though the first know attempts were in the United Kingdom and the United States, modern wind power production is credit to Denmark’s small nation, where the first wind turbines, measuring 22.8 meters in height, instal in 1891 and operations begin in 1897.
