Global Wind Day 15 June
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 change our world.
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.
Thousands of individuals are involved in the production of energy from the wind, but for many people, wind energy is a mystery. Global Wind Day is the day when you can visit wind farms, meet experts, attend events and find out everything you want to know about wind energy.
The European Wind Energy Association (EWEA) and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) coordinate the Global Wind Day through a network of partners. The day started as a European one in 2007 and went Global in 2009. On 15 June, a wide range of public events are organised all over the world.

Story of the week
The 8th Global Wind Day event was held in Yokohama on 13 June featuring the oldest traditional GWD event outside Europe. Over 150 participants visited both the 2.4 MW MWT100 turbine at Mitsubishi Factory and the Vestas 2 MW V80 turbine owned by Yokohama city and learned more about wind power technology.
