Global Wind Day

GWD-general
Global Wind Day is a worldwide event that occurs annually on 15 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.

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 the run-up to 15 June, hundreds of public events will be held all over the world from family outings and wind farm visits to seminars with experts and leading industry figures.
