Today is Global Wind Day, a day for discovering wind, its power and the possibilities it holds!

Global Wind Day is a worldwide event that occurs annually on 15th June. It is a day for discovering wind, its power and the possibilities it holds to reshape our energy systems, decarbonise our economies and boost jobs and growth.

It is also a day for discovery of the work that has already begun by pioneers around the world. In more than 80 countries around the world, wind farms are in operation, generating energy from a clean and renewable source.

Today, wind energy is a mature and mainstream technology and one of the fastest growing industrial sectors in the world with over $100 billion invested in 2015.

In the EU alone, the wind industry installed more than gas and coal combined last year with enough cumulative installed capacity to meet 11.4% of the region’s electricity consumption, equivalent to powering 87 million households.

Global Wind Day is a coordinated action between WindEurope, the Global Wind Energy Council and the national associations to introduce the general public to wind energy through a series of activities.

In order to recognise the significance of Global Wind Day a series of events are hosted. See here
