Germany is on the records for having interest more than almost any other country, in embracing wind power as the future of energy. That country is reportedly third in the world—behind only China and the United States—in total wind power and new wind power added each year, and recently broke a world record for the tallest wind turbine ever built.

The record-breaking turbine, part of a new installation in the town of Gaildorf, reaches an impressive 809 feet from the base to the tip of the blade. The other three turbines that are also part of this installation reach impressive heights as well, with the smallest standing over 500 feet tall.
