It’s all around us. For centuries we have been told that we cannot touch it. We cannot taste it. We cannot hold it. We cannot even see it. We have been told that we cannot catch the wind.

But what if we can catch the wind? What if we can use the power of this unlimited abundant source to power our cities and industries? What if this invisible source can be tamed in a smarter, more efficient way to provide sustainable nergy to our future generations to come? What if?

Another ‘What if’ story that is being explored at Cargo Power & Infrastructure.

The Magic of the Wind:

Wind is a derived form of the energy from the Sun itself. Caused by uneven heating of the air, the irregularities of the earth's surface, and rotation of the earth, Wind can be used to generate usable electric power. The wind flow, or motion energy, when leveraged by modern wind turbines produces clean and sustainable power.

The terms "wind energy" or "wind power" describe the process by which the wind is used to generate mechanical power or electricity. Wind turbines convert the kinetic energy in the wind into mechanical power. This mechanical power can be used for specific tasks (such as grinding grain or pumping water) or a generator can convert this mechanical power into electricity to power homes, businesses, schools, and the like.
