After the “European Solar Days” in May the “Global Wind Day” is commemorated with a lot of events.

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, decarbonise 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, the Global Wind Energy Council 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.

The international postgraduate MSc Program “Renewable Energy in Central & Eastern Europe” offered for the 13th time by the Continuing Education Center (Technische Universität Wien) in cooperation with Energiepark Bruck/Leitha also deals with issues of renewable energy and sustainability, also with wind energy.
