science & technology

Remember Don Quixote fighting the windmills? He believed they were ferocious giants. The traditional suppliers of energy might well turn into modern Don Quixotes in the near future as many countries are heavily investing in wind power. Although the share of wind power as the share of the total energy output is still rather small, it is growing rapidly. The benefits are clear. It’s clean, it’s free, it’s profitable. That’s why we will see many mills on the future’s horizon. Check out the next list of largest wind farms by production!
