At a time when the demand for energy is increasing along with demands from consumers for greener, more sustainable energy sources, solar power has captured more of the public’s attention than wind energy. But adoption of wind power is growing quickly, too, in the U.S. and globally. Authors Walker and Swift provide a comprehensive overview of wind power, including its environmental, economic, and societal impacts, detailed background on how wind energy works, and issues related to building and using it. The authors also address policy as it relates to wind energy. Chapters in the book are formatted in such a way that they could be used in existing university programs. In addition to students and educators, the book also will interest wind energy industry professionals and those involved with its adoption. Annotation ©2015 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (
