Wind Energy is Solar Energy

Wind energy is essentially a transferred form of solar energy. Radiation from the sun heats up various sections of the earth at different rates and varying times. This is often during the daytime and nighttime. Additionally, the sun has an effect on water bodies and land masses, as they reflect and absorb the radiation at different rates. The land masses heat up quicker than the water bodies and this hot air rises resulting in reduced atmospheric pressure on the land surface. This differential pressure provides the driving force for the cool air over the water to rush into the lower pressure areas giving rise to wind.
