In this video, students learn about the benefits and limitations of wind power technologies and how modern wind turbines transform wind energy into electrical energy by capturing wind to turn an electrical generator. Students will also learn that wind farms that produce electricity using wind turbines are environmentally friendly sources of electricity but are not yet in widespread use. The video also looks at some of the issues that limit wind power potential, like energy storage, location, and cost.
This video on wind power would be an excellent resource to introduce renewable sources of energy or start a discussion on the importance of renewable energy sources.
