Iran is the latest country to join Global Wind Day to promote wind energy to the public.
Global Wind Day, organised by the Gloabel Wind Energy Council (GWEC) and the European Wind Energy Association (EWEA), takes place on 15 June every year to promote wind energy to the public.
The event has expanded in the six years it has been running. This year Iran joined for the first time, hosting a day of seminars.
"It's very important to have countries like Iran joining Global Wind Day because if more countries are involved it means we can learn about more examples of the different issues affecting the wind industry around the world," a GWEC spokesperson told Windpower Monthly.
