The wind power is proportional to cube of the wind speed. The surface of the earth is not homogeneous. It absorbs the solar energy radiation differently which creates difference in atmospheric temperature. Thus the density and pressure of air also change which in turn move the air from one place to another. Therefore, the land and water along coast line, valleys and mountains create breezes. The wind power is proportional to cube of the wind speed. At present the harnessing of the wind energy is focused at highly potential wind sites where the average wind speed is high. New wind farms (MW range) are coming up in these areas from Multi-National Companies (MNC) because these sites are profitable and commercially viable. Thus the wind turbines are not installed and wind energy is not harnessed where the wind speed is low. However, in many undeveloped and even developing countries, there is no electrical power supply at all or there is no regular electrical power supply in vast areas. Substantial electric power may be generated using the accelerated wind.
Scholarly peer review is the process of subjecting an author's scholarly work, research, or ideas to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field, before a paper describing this work is published in a journal. The work may be accepted, considered acceptable with revisions, or rejected. Peer review requires a community of experts in a given (narrowly defined) field, who are qualified and able to perform reasonably impartial review.
