Opportunity

As part of Global Wind Day, a coordinated action between WindEurope and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) and the national associations, a photo competition in three categories will celebrate 1) Wind and Nature, 2) Wind Works, and 3) Wind at Sea. More details are available here.

For the Wind at Sea category, photos should capture the power of offshore wind energy. Deadline for submissions is Sunday, 21 May 2017.

What is Global Wind Day

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, decarbonize 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 and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) 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.
