A REPORT ON WIND ENERGY

Dec 31, 2007earth. Wind flow patterns are modified by the earth's terrain, bodies of water, and vegetation. Humans use this wind flow, or motion energy, for many purposes: sailing, flying a kite, and even generating electricity. The terms wind energy, or wind power, describe the process by which the wind is used to generate mechanical power or electricity.
