Wind energy companies generate power using wind turbines, which are tall structures with propeller-like blades that are rotated by the wind. This wind-powered motion causes the turbine to collect kinetic energy that is then turned into electricity. The following wind power companies use the wind to produce renewable energy with a lower environmental impact compared to traditional energy sources.
Top Wind Power Companies
- EDP Renewables
- TPI Composites
