Wind energy is the energy obtained from the wind, i.e., the kinetic energy generated by effect of air currents, and that is converted into other forms useful for human activities. Currently, wind energy is mainly used for producing electricity using wind turbines. Wind energy is a clean, renewable, plentiful resource and helps reduce emissions GHG replacing thermoelectric-based fossil fuels, making it a kind of green energy. However, the main drawback is its intermittent, which require constant and strong winds another problem is its great cost for its manufacture and its size, this prevents you from using it anywhere. Wind energy gets electricity from the movement of air over the surface of the Earth. Wind power stations are normally composed of large farms of windmills in areas with relatively constant and strong winds.
These farms are normally considered to be unattractive. In addition, the windmills disrupt low-intensity winds, and can be very noisy. Both of these facts create problems for local bird populations, especially the death of many of them. Mills also need constant maintenance, since they consist of many moving parts exposed to the elements. In addition to a supplementary motor to spin the blades when there is much wind. Considerable several kilometers offshore wind farms are now being installed. All this makes very accessible to consumers acquire this technology, by all these features mentioned. In costuraste they are the technologies that produce electrical and thermal energy of the catchment of the energy emitted by the Sun, among the most efficient we found solar concentrators, since they concentrated all power in a focal point, multiplying the energy that emits the Sun, this type of technology is more accessible by its cost, also by the space that requires, can be installed on any site. To be able to benefit even more than solar energy, it would be advisable to acquire a team capable of producing both thermal and photovoltaic energy simultaneously, there are currently few companies able to produce this technology, an innovative equipment capable of producing a large amount of energy is one called solarbeam, this system produces these two types of energy in large quantity, its parabolic design allows to capture solar energy and redirect to a focal point, where a heat exchanger, which transfers the thermal energy is to a liquid carrier Calo in addition to be found in that same focal point photovoltaic cells that produce electric power, this focal point capable of producing these two energies have a measure of about 25 square centimeters, another of its characteristics is that it has a solar tracking system potato harvest sunlight throughout the day and receive them perpendicularly, solar tracking system consists of a GPS and a celestial algorithm only, in addition to various security systems, with this innovative system it can greatly leverage the whole solar energy, this being a clean, renewable and free resource, giving us the possibility to save money and more importantly contribute to considerably reducing emissions of polluting gases.
