A Critical Review on Wind Energy

Saurabh verma, Anurag verma, Sunil kumar, Shivanshu verma, Arun Kumar Yadav, Anurag Dwivedi


In this paper, along with the development of current wind energy technology, the trends and prospective difficulties have been carefully examined. A free, pure, and limitless energy source is the wind. It has benefited humanity for many generations by powering wind turbines to pump water and drive ships. For at least three thousand years, people have used windmills to grind grain or pump water, and for much longer, the wind has been a crucial source of propulsion for sailing ships. The era of inexpensive, abundant petroleum was coming to an end. People started to understand that the world's oil resources wouldn't endure forever and that the petrochemical sector should conserve the remaining supplies. For instance, oil would no longer be allowed to be used as boiler fuel. Energy sources other than oil and natural gas also need to be explored. Although wind energy technology is advanced, there are still a lot of things that can be done to make it more affordable.
