Disrupted Energy – how wind power is becoming hot again. . .

Construction of the first offshore wind farm to begin in the USA in 2015

Wind powered energy is expected to have doubled in capacity by the end of 2015 from 2010 (see infographic below).

Offshore wind farms also bring some potential side benefits – modelling suggests that large wind farms can disrupt storms and hurricanes before they cause damage onshore.

Here’s a useful video on how wind turbine technology works.
