  • 1. WIND TURBINE
    LOCATIONS!
  • 2. Ever started a business…
  • 3. Ever started a business…
    …that sucked?
  • 4. Don’t blame yourself.
  • 5. No, wait.
  • 6. DO blame yourself.
  • 7. DO blame yourself.
    Your location probably sucked.
  • 8. If you’re planning to set up a wind turbine,
  • 9. Choose a good
  • 10. LOCATION.
  • 11. Wind energy gained popularity in terms of renewable energy.
    THROUGHOUT HISTORY
  • 12. It has greatly contributed to the economy and livelihood of the people.
    THROUGHOUT HISTORY
  • 13. In fact, majority find it as an interesting feature for any landscape.
    THROUGHOUT HISTORY
  • 14. However, finding the best site for wind turbines is a crucial task for many.
    THROUGHOUT HISTORY
  • 15.
  • 16. WIND SPEED
  • 17. Since a wind turbine is highly dependent on
    wind (duh), choose an
    area that is open to air.
    WIND SPEED
  • 18. Since a wind turbine is highly dependent on
    wind (duh), choose an
    area that is open to air.
    Ideally, wind speeds
    should be at least 11
    to 13 miles per hour.
    WIND SPEED
  • 19. ELEVATION
  • 20. An area that is located
    on higher ground can produce the best results.
    ELEVATION
  • 21. An area that is located
    on higher ground can produce the best results.
    This is because wind speeds are faster
    on higher elevation.
    ELEVATION
  • 22. SECURITY
  • 23. Choose a private place where it is not exposed
    to the public.
    SECURITY
  • 24. Choose a private place where it is not exposed
    to the public.
    This is to ensure that no one get hurts in case
    an accident happens.
    SECURITY
  • 25. WILDLIFE
  • 26. Choose a location that
    is far away from wildlife.
    WILDLIFE
  • 27. Choose a location that
    is far away from wildlife.
    The presence of a wind turbine can have an
    impact on wildlife and
    can even kill birds.
    WILDLIFE
  • 28. AVIATION
  • 29. Avoid a place where
    aerial activities are commonly sited.
    AVIATION
  • 30. Avoid a place where
    aerial activities are commonly sited.
    It can disrupt
    or damage the
    wind turbines.

  • 31. THE 3 MOST COMMON WIND TURBINE LOCATIONS IN THE WORLD ARE:
  • 32. THE 3 MOST COMMON WIND TURBINE LOCATIONS IN THE WORLD ARE:
    MOUNTAINS/HILLS
  • 33. THE 3 MOST COMMON WIND TURBINE LOCATIONS IN THE WORLD ARE:
    MOUNTAINS/HILLS
    DESERTS/PLAINS
  • 34. THE 3 MOST COMMON WIND TURBINE LOCATIONS IN THE WORLD ARE:
    MOUNTAINS/HILLS
    DESERTS/PLAINS
    OFFSHORE
  • 35. MOUNTAINS/HILLS
  • 36. MOUNTAINS/HILLS
    HIGHER ELEVATION = FASTER WIND SPEEDS
  • 37. MOUNTAINS/HILLS
    FASTER WIND SPEEDS = MORE ENERGY
  • 38. MOUNTAINS/HILLS
    (exactly why mountains/hills are good wind turbine locations)
    FASTER WIND SPEEDS = MORE ENERGY
  • 39. DESERTS/PLAINS
  • 40. DESERTS/PLAINS
    Deserts and plains are two of the best places for gathering renewable energy.
  • 41. DESERTS/PLAINS
    Not only are wind speeds very fast,
    sunlight is also very abundant.
  • 42. DESERTS/PLAINS
    This makes both wind energy and solar energy viable energy sources that can serve as back-ups of each other.
  • 43. DESERTS/PLAINS
    There are also less obstructions that can hinder the wind, ensuring maximal wind speeds.
  • 44. OFFSHORE
  • 45. OFFSHORE
    The sea is the best place for
    setting up wind turbines.
  • 46. OFFSHORE
    WHY?
  • 47. OFFSHORE
    First of all, wind speeds along the sea are extremely fast thanks to little or no obstructions to the wind.
  • 48. OFFSHORE
    Second, it’s far away from land, making sure that no people or wildlife will be affected.
  • 49. OFFSHORE
    The only disadvantage with setting up offshore wind farms is that they cost a lot more to develop than onshore wind farms.
  • 50. Here are some examples of great places with wind turbines:
  • 51. Pennsylvania
    The Casselman Wind Power Project is a wind farm that began commercial operation in 2007, located at Somerset County, Pennsylvania with 23 GE 1.5 MW Wind Turbines.
  • 52. Denmark
    A highly efficient country, 20% of it is taking advantage on wind energy as their source of electricity.
  • 53. India
    Presently, India generates 5% of its energy from wind power and this goes up every year.
    It is foreseen that India could go beyond other developing countries in terms of using the alternative energy sources.
  • 54. Philippines
    These wind turbines are the first of its kind in the country, built along the shores of Bangui, Ilocos Norte .
    Its geographical feature where sea and land perfectly meet create very fast and strong winds.
  • 55. Germany
    A total of 21,164 wind turbines with a capacity of 25,777 megawatts were installed in the country all in all by the year end of 2009.
