As the global climate crisis deepens, and political attention to climate increases in the run up to the Paris Climate summit in December, Global Wind Day celebrates the fact that more and more companies are turning to clean, reliable and cost-effective wind energy to power their businesses.
Global Wind Day is a worldwide event that occurs annually on 15 June. It is a day for discovering wind energy, its power and the possibilities it holds to reshape our energy systems, decarbonize our economies and boost jobs and growth.
Wind energy has become fully mainstream and is today one of the fastest growing industrial sectors in the world, attracting $100 billion in investment in 2014. This shows that wind power doesn’t only make sense environmentally and socially, but it is also cost-competitive. Onshore wind power is now cheaper than conventional energy sources in an expanding number of markets worldwide.
