Description

Windpower remains one of the world's most developed forms of renewable energy, and the oceans offer room for considerable expansion. This comprehensive survey features over 140 striking photos and illustrations that examine the history of wind turbine technology's association with coastal breezes and the current movement of putting turbines into the water. Europe has taken the lead in this abundant offshore wind energy, but North America and Asia are expected to catch up in the next 10 to 20 years. The process of building an offshore wind farm is explored. The color images help illuminate the text and inspire the imagination. An extensive list of resources enables individuals, businesses, and advocates to tap into wind as a free, natural, and clean source of energy. For all who have dreamed of utilizing the Earth's natural, renewable energy without polluting the environment or endangering wildlife, this book is for you.
