Problem

Underutilization of wind energy

Other Names:
Inadequate use of wind power
Nature:
The total annual potential global wind energy is approximately 1200 million MW, but it can only be economically tapped at a limited number of sites, due as much to cost and public acceptance as to technology.
Claim:
Wind-energy machines can be used for water pumping, flour milling and electricity generation, thus supplying readily available energy vital to rural regions in developing and developed countries. Sailing ships can save millions of tonnes of fuel.
Strategies:
Using wind power
Problem Type:
F: Fuzzy exceptional problems
