Wind power is an infinite source of renewable energy, as wind turbines convert the kinetic energy of the air in motion into electricity.
The modern wind power sector emerged in the 1980s and, since 2000, the industry has grown rapidly, driven by R&D and the increasing competitiveness of the technology, which has reduced its costs by 56% between 2010 and 2020. However, both onshore and offshore wind still have a great potential for deployment worldwide.
Relying on specialized support from an independent third party, such as Enertis Applus+, is essential for proper technical advice at different stages of wind projects.
