About this title:

Synopsis:

This title includes a number of Open Access chapters.

Wind power is one of the fastest developing sources of renewable energy. It makes substantial contributions to power grids around the globe, and it promises to play a prominent role in the world’s future energy security. Given that reality, there is an ongoing need for research that investigates the potential of specific regions for wind-farm development, combined with the social, economic, and environmental impacts of that development. This compendium contains the most recent research on these topics from around the world. The chapters are organized into three parts:

  • The potential of wind power in selected regions of the world
  • Social, economic, and environmental factors that influence wind development
  • Current trends within the wind industry and the challenges it must face to contribute to the world’s future energy security

With its distinguished editor and international team of contributors, this book is a valuable resource for researchers and university-level students investigating this expanding field of study. It will also be a useful reference book for wind-power engineers, technicians, and planners.

About the Author:
