In this video from NOVA’s Energy Lab, learn about the benefits and limitations of wind power technologies. Modern wind turbines transform wind energy into electrical energy by capturing wind to turn an electrical generator. Wind farms that produce electricity using wind turbines are environmentally-friendly sources of electricity, but they are not yet in widespread use. Some of the issues that limit the potential of wind power include energy storage, location, and cost.
