After, more than two years of struggling with the COVID-19 pandemic, the world now faces an unparalleled economic and ecological challenge. The speed with which the world recovers will be determined by our collective decisions in the months ahead. We have to create jobs and accelerate our economies.
Accelerated growth would mean an increased demand for power without compromising on sustainability. Wind Energy as a power source cannot be overlooked. Harvesting Wind energy will contribute to the green recovery by providing jobs, clean and affordable electricity, and energy security and allowing governments to update vital infrastructure for a long-term future.
7 important facts about Harvesting Wind Energy
4. Wind being a renewable resource that will not be exhausted via use, it has a much lower environmental and climate impact than burning fossil fuels.
5. Once installed, wind turbines have a low operating cost, as wind is for free.
7. Wind energy is one of the world’s fastest growing energy sources.
What places are good for harvesting Wind Energy?
According to key international energy institutes IRENA and the IEA our present growth rates are lagging behind a net zero trajectory, and we will only be able to generate 43% of the required wind capacity by 2050. To achieve our targets the annual wind energy installations must multiply three times worldwide over the next decade to get back on track.
On #WorldWindEnergyDay, let all nations come together for a concerted effort to quickly innovate and implement sustainable energy resources like wind and solar power to support our growth without compromising on the future of our earth.

Interesting facts about Windmills though I feel we need WTs for domestic use also
Yes but one has to take into consideration the space needed, the noise generated ,the wind velocity for residential use. Thank you for stopping by !
I didnt know much about wind energy. Thank you for the detailed post. The earth is getting smaller due to the population and resources. We are depleting all of them. Wind energy has been there for a very long time but has not been utilised much. Now after solar energy wind energy is catching up.
That’s quite correct !
We are now at a time, where have to understand how we can use our nature and environment. Wind harvesting is a great way to save energy. Thanks for the detailed post.
Appreciate your support!
Most of us have learned about wind energy in schools but it never came into limelight. Solar energy is still popular among people. Now, we have to be more serious about using these natural sources of energy.
Quite true , solar energy is easier to harness than wind but wind is more prevalent year round.
This is a need of hour and using natural resources like wind energy is a great idea to save environment and preserve energy resources for future generations. Your post explained all insight about it so well.
I am glad you approve!
I’m a huge supporter of utilising natural resources for power generation, like solar and wind. I’ve seen wind turbines work and they indeed are immensely cost effective.
Glad to know that you feel the same Varsh
Dwindling conventional energy sources and their adverse impact on environment at large are making the sustainability initiatives centerstage. I’m glad this article shines a light on wind harvesting. More power to all these awareness efforts.
Thank you so much Dear Bushra for your support.
Wind turbines is a one time investment and as your said less operating cost later on. It is important that we start looking for sustainable resources, and make earth a better place to live.
Yes Swati, it is high time we implement harvesting renewable sources of energy.
In India too, there are wind mills but you are right that we need to have more awareness and more installations so that are we can use the renewable energy.
The concept of wind energy and its conservation is new to me. Glad I came across this post to know so much in detail about this.
7 important facts about Harvesting Wind Energy, sounds so interesting. I didnt know much about this. Thank you for the detailed post. I will definitely share this with my daughter.
I am happy to know that your daughter shares the concern about climate crisis
Wind energy is a renewable form of energy..it’s in demand ..India has invested much in this field and all other nations are on the footsteps of India in this field.
If we go to Tamil nadu we can see so many wind Mills . Wind energy like solar energy is the most source of enegey
Now , I did not know about Tamil nadu too having wind farms, that’s great information.
