Why does Ukraine need windmills

The World wind-power engineering develops rapidly.It's unbelievable but fact: it provides more than 10 million houses in 37 countries of the world. The leaders of the wind energy usage are Germany, the USA, Spain, Denmark, the Netherlands, Italy. For instance Denmark plans to increase the part of the wind energy usage in the national energy-balance up to 50 per cent, Germany - up to 30, the USA - up to 25 per cent.

The wind energy usage is becoming more and more actual for Ukraine, which to a great extent depends on organic fuel supplies. The practice of countries, which have no own stocks of fuel and energy resources, testifies that power independence is based on the accelerated development of renovating energy sources, among which is wind power - one of the most perspective one.
