Global Wind Day 2022: Significance
With the threat of global warming approaching, it is more significant than ever to make optimal use of energy sources such as wind. As per the globalwinday.org wind energy is now a mature and widely used technology. In the previous year, the wind industry installed more than the gas and coal sectors combined in the EU. It also has the installed capacity to power 87million households or 15% of the region’s electrical demand. With such potential, the significance of day increases enormously, as more people must be aware of the advantages of wind energy. This initiative is a collaboration between several nations.
Global Wind Day: History
The First Wind Day was commemorated in 2007 by the European Wind Energy Association (EWEA). In 2009 the EWEA collaborated with the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) and made it a global event. WindEurope and GWEC from then celebrate this day together. In 2012, the clubs promoted photography competition where people were encouraged to capture the best picture keeping in mind the theme of the year.
