The wind is the flow of gases on a massive scale caused by differences in atmospheric pressure, one of the main factors for the temperature difference. The wind is something that can be very gentle and very destructive at the same time. Apart from that, Wind is one of the largest renewable energy sources that provide electricity, and also more than 10% of the world’s electricity is from Wind energy.
