In recent decades various renewable energy resources have attracted a lot of attention because they are pollution-free and inexhaustible. Wind power is the conversion of wind energy into a useful form of energy, such as using wind turbines to make electricity, wind mills for mechanical power, wind pumps for pumping water or drainage, or sails to propel ships.
