ABSTRACT
The beginning of the IIIrd millennium faces a more and more concrete threatening: exhaustion of Earth resources and the entrance in a state of collapse as long as the states of the world will not find, as soon as possible, some alternative resources that they can use in the most important fields of activities. Aeolian energy represents a solution in what concerns the exhaustion of resources of fossil fuels, but not only. Aeolian energy also represents an alternative in what concerns the protection of the surrounding environment, its noxious effects being incomparable smaller than the ones produces by conventional energy. As a response to this threatening of the IIIrd millennium, the states of the world will have to unite their forces in the activity of research and implementation of some sustainable alternatives, the most important scope being the protection of the environment and of the finite resources of the Earth.
