Wind Energy for the Rest of Us: A Comprehensive Guide to Wind Power and How to Use It

Wind Energy for the Rest of Us by Paul Gipe straddles two—or more—worlds. The book is about wind energy. It’s not just about small wind turbines. It’s not just about large wind turbines. It’s about the depth and breadth of wind energy, encompassing more than either type of wind turbine. It includes water-pumping windmills and sailing ships. It’s a sprawling book, one minute discussing how to install small wind turbines safely, the next explaining how farmers in Indiana can earn millions of dollars in revenue by installing their own multimegawatt wind turbines. It’s a book hard to categorize. That suits Gipe. He likes to think he’s hard to categorize after more than three decades in renewable energy. His book tells the story of modern wind energy in all its complexity.

Wind Energy for the Rest of Us will be available digitally and in print mid-2016.
