In Wind Speed: An Overview, the history and development of wind energy is reviewed. Scientific trends in the academic field of wind energy are determined using a scientometric network analysis.
The relationship between wind speed forecasting and wind disasters is evaluated, particularly focusing on extra-tropical and tropical cyclones due to their dynamic origins.

Wind energy plays a significant role in clean energy sources, and the amount of energy that can be produced from a wind turbine is directly related to the value of the wind speed in that specific location.

The closing study focuses on wind as a source of energy in Kitka and Koznica, maintaining that in order to harness wind energy, it is necessary to carry out terrain condition analyses for the installation of wind turbines.
