Wind energy is a renewable energy source that utilizes the natural movement of air to generate electricity. It is harnessed by wind turbines, which convert the kinetic energy of wind into mechanical energy through the rotation of their blades. This mechanical energy is then transformed into electrical energy by a generator within the turbine. Wind energy systems can range from small-scale installations powering individual homes to large-scale wind farms supplying electricity to the grid. As a clean and sustainable alternative to fossil fuels, wind energy plays a crucial role in the global shift towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions and promoting energy independence. Technological advancements and cost reductions have made wind energy increasingly competitive, contributing to its growing importance in the overall energy mix
