Description

This item was taken from the IEEE Conference ' Expedient Wind Energy Potential in Louisiana ' Year after year, the world improves upon new ideas and forms of practical ways of applying green energy to humanity''s daily life. Some of these types include solar, nuclear, and natural gas energy, but wind power is growing in the ranks as far as popularity and usage. Countries such as China, the United States, and Germany have led the interest of using renewable resources via windy energy in recent years. The United States is currently building more wind farms and finding more ways to incorporate wind power usage in the lives of average Americans. Certain states are quite advantageous for benefiting from wind power and some have not implemented the use of wind power yet. Louisiana''s current involvement with wind energy is absent because Louisiana is primarily an oil and gas state. Since oil and gas are fossil fuels, they will eventually run out and people will need new sources for energy. Renewable energy sources are a practical choice of sources because they are replenished naturally. With the development of wind energy growing each year, Louisiana could greatly benefit from investing in wind projects. An overview of the development of this industry worldwide and a breakdown of wind energy economically and environmentally will validate that wind energy is a feasible source of green energy for Louisiana.
