    A growing number of global wind resource assessments have demonstrated that the world’s technical potential for wind power exceeds current global electricity production. The theoretical potential for wind, as estimated by the global annual flux, has been estimated at 6,000 EJ/yr (Rogner et al., 2000). The global technical potential for wind energy, meanwhile, is not […]
