Potential Energy and Wind Power

Good Essays
Walking outside, wind blows towards your face, can you imagine the wind can transfer to electricity? Majority people in China have the idea of the coal-burning as a way to produce electricity. However, coal is a limited resource nowadays. Scientists had found out several alternative ways to produce energy, for example—wind power. Wind power can bring us many benefits because wind is an infinite resource; wind power is environmentally friendly while wind farm is also a low-tax project. Wind power, a new way to create energy, has become more and more popular.

Scientists, nowadays, are concerned about the limitation of fossil fuels worldwide. It means some country whose electricity is most produced by fossil fuels may have the energy crisis in the future. However, other countries, use wind as an energy resource, not have to worry about the situation because wind power is infinite. What actually happens is sun’s heat causes the air to warm up in patches. In a result, some patches of air become warm while other patches remain cold. Hot air gets lighter in weight hence leaves it place and move towards upside, colder air patches are bit heavier there for their rushes to fill up the space that is left unoccupied by heated air, and this process generates wind. Because the sun will not be destroyed in a short time, we will have to wind for such a long time. Thus, wind power has infinite source supply (Solarpowernotes). The infinity of wind makes wind power a endless energy
