This day was created “for discovering wind, its power and the possibilities it holds to change our world.” It was specifically created to encourage the public to learn more about wind energy, and to demonstrate how this renewable energy resource can help us build a cleaner and healthier future.
 
According to the Global Wind Energy Council:
 
Every year, European citizens spend €421 billion on fossil fuel imports – more than €2 each per day – a whopping €730 each annually!
 
Wind energy does not need to be imported. Wind turbines installed around the world replace expensive, unreliable and polluting fossil fuel imports, as well as bringing jobs and cleaner air.
 
Mid-June represents the moment each year when Europe has used up its own energy and must switch to energy imports.
 
This is why the annual day for discovering wind energy – Global Wind Day, 15 June – will in 2014 focus on energy independence around the world and how wind energy can help.
