The Wind Energy Ireland is committed to the promotion and education of wind energy issues. With this in mind, Wind Energy Ireland has developed a number of educational resources on the theme of wind energy.
Our Energy, Our Future
Listen as young people across Ireland call for action!
1. What are the advantages and disadvantages of using wind energy? 2. Are world leaders taking climate change seriously? Explain your reasoning. 3. What are global leaders doing about climate change? 4. What should world leaders do on climate action?
Did you know that the same breeze that dries your clothes and flies your kite also creates electricity to keep the lights on in your home and school? In September 2021 more than 104,000 copies of the attached wind energy education poster will be carried across a number of regional newspapers.
The infographic which is printed on recycled paper, in full colour, will be printed in English on one side and Irish on the other. It is A3 in size
Learn how to make a model wind turbine. The design process is made easier with this practical template and assembly instructions. The assembly of the different components will take time and patience but the end result is very rewarding. Will the blades of your turbine rotate?
Consider the basics of wind energy by reading about what energy is and what wind is. Afterwards, delve further into wind energy by finding the answers to questions like; how does a wind turbine work, how does electricity get from the turbine to our homes and what happens when the wind doesn't blow?
