In the spotlight: wind energy
Introduction to wind
There has been a tremendous growth in the use of wind energy in Europe, which has a strong environmental and economic security policy framework to support wind energy. Rapid technical developments, gear design innovations and ongoing increase of power capacity characterize this booming market. The global wind industry is responding fast to the increasing need for wind energy development. Worlwide companies are investing in wind power, being convinced of the benefits that wind energy can bring, e.g. clean energy production and less dependence of fossil energy sources.
