Abstract : Most wind energy history writing relates to the industrialization that emerged in the early 1980s. Wind Power for the World: The Rise of Modern Wind Energy throws light on how the modern three-bladed wind turbine came into being and who, how and what in the period that followed caused the success of the technology. This book takes readers 40 years back to show the roots of this exciting development, which is a long cavalcade of developers, inventors and manufacturers who gave their bigger or smaller contributions to what began in 1975 and in the course of five to eight years became a real modern industry. The book focuses on Denmark, Germany and China, which were among the few countries that led the proliferation of the contemporary wind power. Since the cradle of the modern wind turbine stands in Denmark, the book brings forth authentic stories told by the Danish authors who themselves often were part of the breakthrough
