Renewable Energies: Wind Power – a presentation by an expert for translators
Wind power is one of the major forms of renewable energy being developed to meet future energy needs. In this lecture by an expert for translators the basic principles of wind energy will be introduced – including how to assess the power in the wind. An overview of the design and technology associated with wind turbines will be presented along with wind farm development and the integration of wind power into electricity systems.
The speaker will include specific technical terminology and explain concepts that are important to translators and interpreters. The webinar will be in English.
This video goes hand-in-hand with the second presentation by Dr Blanchard, on solar power. You don’t need to buy one, to enjoy the other.
