Coordinated by the European Wind energy Association (EWEA), the thinking behind the event is that at a time of energy and climate crisis, it is vital to explain to European citizens and decision-makers that an energy shift is needed and possible. The wind sector will demonstrate that wind power has strong public support as an unlimited, clean source of energy, which is stable, secure and independent from outside supply.
The European Wind Day will be celebrated across the continent, with events taking place simultaneously in Brussels, Copenhagen, Madrid, Athens, Vienna and other major cities. National associations, manufacturers and wind developers will all organise ‘wind events’ in their respective towns and cities and also at wind farms.
On 15 June, at 12:00 the organisers will launch their activities carrying the same identity and conveying the same message. On the very same day, the European wind industry will encourage European citizens to switch to green electricity.
