The Natural Power of Wind

Added: 03 Nov 2021 Contributor: Wind Energy Ireland Resource type: Guide/notes

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
