Global Wind Day 2022: What is Wind energy?

The wind is moving air and is a form of energy. It is caused by differences in air pressure within our atmosphere. Under high pressure, air moves toward areas of low pressure. Let us tell you that the greater the difference in pressure, the faster the air flows. As we know that Cyclone Vayu may hit the Gujarat state. It is also the windstorm that may cause landfills. Winds can range from a light breeze on a hot summer day to tornadoes and hurricanes or cyclones with speeds of hundreds of kilometers per hour.

When we see Air, it does not seem like anything but during a windstorm, its presence can be seen. Wind may lift roofs off buildings, blow down power lines, accidents at highways, push cars, trucks etc.
