ENERGY RESOURCES-wind 

Advantages

  • No fuel is burned-so no atmospheric pollution
  • Nothing has to be transported to the site nor any waste disposed of
  • Coal,Oil,Gas is not burned so does not increase the 'greenhouse effect'

Disadvantages

  • Wind is not always strong enough to generate any electricity
  • Wind may not match demand for electricity
  • Visual and sound pollution could cause loss of scenic value/tourist potential
  • Manufacture of turbines results in pollution

Evaluation

The kinetic energy of the wind is used to turn turbines giving them kinetic energy. Turbines then cause generators to rotate which transfers the energy to electrical energy.
