RiAus PDplus: Wind Technology
Wind can be one of the most powerful forces in nature. It can be tremendously destructive, as we see too often with typhoons and hurricanes, but it can also be harnessed to improve the quality of people’s lives.
Whether we like it or not, the wind is a natural force we have to contend with in our daily lives. We appreciate it when it brings cool sea air on a hot summer night, blows pollution out of our cities, carries much-needed rain to a dry landscape or blows energy into our sails so we can ride effortlessly across the water. Alternatively, we curse it when it rips the roofs from our houses, blows dust in our faces or drives bushfires at high speed into our towns and cities.
During the live online seminar with Andrew Dickson, a wind technology expert, we talked about wind technology, solar energy and his science career.
