This paper presents a review of the recent advances of the wind power. The wind power is a very clean and renewable alternative to the burning fossil fuels and has no impact on the environment. The energy scientists are in knowledge of the world needs to increase the clean energy sources. The impact of the classical process for generating the power on the environment has created a need for a strategic planning and development of the clean and sustainable power systems of generation. This paper focuses on the recent aspects of the wind power and the technology including several technical issues.
