Wind power

Wind power is used since the antiquity and gets more and more important in the world of renewable energy. The wind energy is the kinetic energy of moving air masses. Wind power stations covert the kinetic energy into electricity and feed it into the public power supply. Further appropriation of wind power can be found in leisure activities as sailing or surfing.
