Growing greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuel-powered generating stations and concerns about the safety and cost of nuclear power have made wind an increasingly attractive alternative source of energy in many countries. This project is producing a video on the basics of wind energy and its capture. With a target audience of high school and university students, the goal of the project is to expand knowledge about wind energy and to encourage its acceptance and increased use.
