Wind turbines are rapidly becoming more efficient and less expensive, making them competitive with or less expensive than electricity generated by coal-fired power plants. Experts estimate that within the next 10 years, wind energy will become the least expensive source of electricity. And, they can be built to power a single home or an entire island, and they have small footprints only occupying a small fraction of the land they sit on.
As this collection shows, wind turbines have become an integral source of energy used around the world - from Texas to a remote Danish island powered entirely by renewable energy. Additionally, they can be built from basic, household materials, as proven by a resourceful Malawian teen, and the turbines' components can be re-utilized many times. Wind turbines offer a clean energy solution for developing and developed countries alike, and are one of the most viable options for reducing CO2 emissions.
