02. power of the wind wind mills - relics of a bygone era. Its principle - to use the energy of the wind - is ancient. In Persia were the first wind turbines already 3,000 years ago.
Today, in the age of scarce as energy sources, wind power is experiencing a Renaissance. On the German North Sea coast, a particularly drafty corner, the largest wind turbine in the world was taken. On the first day it blew so violent that politicians, journalists and curious onlookers in a tent sheltered.
Growian - short name for large wind turbine - so towers such as the Cologne Cathedral. The rotor in diameter 100 meters long, to 12 million kilowatt hours to generate a generator - electricity for 4,000 homes. But Growian can replace not power plants. In densely populated industrial States, wind power is today no alternative to power - only an additional source of energy. To test the limits of their economic and technical possibilities - thats the task.
Smaller wind turbines turn again in Northern Germany for a long time. As I said: no nostalgia, but return to a proven principle. Yet, whether 3,000 years ago today: the wind blows only when he wants to.
