Electricity from the wind


Current electricity, Energy changes and transfers, Energy changes in systems, Energy resources and fuels

How can I use this with my class?

Use this presentation to build your class’s knowledge of wind and wind energy. Using the electricity from the wind presentation will build on students’ knowledge of convection, renewable energy resources and energy stores.

The investigating wind turbines worksheet can be used to design and carry out an experiment on wind turbine blades. The worksheet provides further information on wind energy, space to consider variables and clear instructions. You can use this task to apply student’s knowledge of the work done calculation to a real-world example and use it to conclude and evaluate an investigation.

Three wind turbines in the middle of the sea. One is close up, so the propellers are very large and you can see small antenna in top. The other two are in the distance so you can see how they sit in the water. The day is clear, the sky is very blue without clouds and the sea is still.

Energy, electricity and the wind

Link the science of energy stores and transfers to generating electricity from the wind, before taking on the challenge to plan a new wind farm.
