A history of wind turbines
By the end of 2022, 21 of France's 56 nuclear reactors were shut down. In 2021, almost 70% of electricity will be generated by this energy source. Against a backdrop of both energy crisis and transition, the diversification of production methods via renewable energies needs to be developed. Over the course of history, many machines have been built using wind power. Some were used to grind grain, while others were used to generate electricity. Today's wind turbines are the fruit of multiple evolutions. What inventions have influenced their development?
