The world’s oceans are said to be the source of infinite wealth. However, if these resources can be utilized, Atlantic wind power can meet the world’s energy needs, not just bottom. This was stated in a research article published in the United States on Monday.
So far, all the electricity generated by wind is on land. But researchers at the Carnegie Institution for Science in the United States say that open-sea wind turbines can generate up to five times as much electricity as land.
However, in this case, there are still some problems. Electricity is not equally available as wind speeds vary at different times. So far, all the electricity generated by wind is on land. Installing giant turbines in the open sea is also a challenge. However, scientists say that installing wind turbines at sea will ultimately be profitable.
According to a research report by the National Academy of Sciences, the amount of electricity generated by wind power in the North Atlantic during the winter is enough for the whole world. But in the summer, that electricity could somehow meet the needs of Europe or the United States.
In the state of Kansas in the United States, wind power is used to generate electricity on a commercial basis. The scientists presented these results by comparing the power of the Atlantic wind with the wind turbines in Kansas.
