Top 10 Wind Energy Producing Countries 2013

Wind power is a main pillar of tomorrow’s energy production that provides clean and climate-friendly energy; furthermore eliminate susceptibility to the price volatility of imported fuel. It’s a great time for all countries to stop reliance on fossil fuels and start depending on renewable sources like wind to get long term benefits that can be produced in great amount in almost every country of the world that will brings many advantages such as energy security, Carbon dioxide reduction, and economic benefits. In today’s world, Wind Energy has become an important source of generating electricity since it is economical, effectively infinite and protects air. Most countries have started relying on renewable energy sources to have better energy security and more environmental protection. The production of wind energy has become more beneficial to people, industry and governments since it is not permanently depleted, less expensive and environment friendly. All countries are attempting to maximize their output from wind source, as a result production get doubled in every three to four years, reached the figure of 336 GW in June 2014, about 4% of global electricity consumption.
