Wind Energy x Thermoambient Energy - Advantages and Disadvantages

Wind Energy x Thermoambient Energy
This text will be better understood if you have previously read the article: Thermoambient Energy, the energy source of the future.

Despite being clean, renewable and sustainable, wind power has a serious side effect that has not been widely publicized. Wind is a physical manifestation resulting from the temperature difference between two or more localities. And, one of the goals, is to balance temperatures as much as possible around the planet. In the long term, installing wind farms, partially obstructing the flow of the winds at low altitudes, will increase the temperature difference between hot spots and cold places, contributing, although in a small proportion, to the climatic imbalance.

Especially in summer, cities receive large amounts of heat (heat from automobiles, industries, homes, asphalt etc.) and generally get higher temperatures than in their surroundings. The consequence is that the air of cities heats up, becomes less dense, and goes up. The "vacuum" left by the rising air is responsible for attracting the surrounding air, usually colder. With this, the wind flows from the coldest region to the hottest region and, consequently, cooling the hottest region, in this case, the cities. Now imagine what will happen to the temperature of cities as we begin to fill their surroundings with wind farms, partially obstructing the passage of these winds.

Now add to this the fact that all the electrical energy generated by these wind farms will turn into heat when used there, in the cities themselves. (Remember that, ambient heat, is the last stage of any and all energy transformation or work accomplishment).

Nuclear energy, solar energy and hydropower contribute to global warming only once. As explained in the page Thermoambient Energy, the energy source of the future, the electrical energy resulting from these transformations, will turn into heat during its use directly or indirectly. Wind energy, however, contributes to the heating of cities twice: the first, when it imposes resistance to the passage of the winds that would cool the cities; the second, when it passes into the form of electrical energy and consequently turns into ambient heat during its everyday use.

The promising Thermoambient Energy, however, does not add heat to the planet because it recycles the already existing heat into the environment. Furthermore, unlike other renewable energies, it is 100% clean and 100% recyclable.
