As part of the climate and weather, wind is always blowing somewhere. It can be harnessed for energy.
The force of the wind can be transformed into electricity, providing a reliable source of renewable energy - when the sun isn't shining. But development of wind power faces many challenges, least among them the size of required infrastructure.
In Lebanon, power outages in some areas last for up to 12 hours a day. Now, the country's first wind farm is hoping to provide an extra 90 minutes of power supply nationwide, but the war in neighbouring Syria, the question of who actually owns the land and migrating birds flying through the area are posing more than a few difficulties.
