The Energiewende (German for energy transition) is a concept that describes the transition to a low carbon, sustainable, reliable, and affordable energy supply. In the not too distant future our energy systems will rely on renewable energy, energy efficiency, and energy demand management. Dirty coal and oil fired generation will be retired. Visit Webpage

Electricity from wind energy is one of the fastest growing methods of electrical generation in the world. Kinetic energy from moving air is converted into electricity by wind turbines that are mounted in locations where there are favourable weather patterns. Wind turbines may be employed individually, but are often installed in groups to form
