Global Wind Day: Global Wind Day 2021


Global Wind Day 2020

Global Wind Day 2021: Global Wind Day is organized by WindEurope ( and Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC). Various programs are organized in many countries on this day. Worldwide, in more than 75 countries, wind farms are in operation, and energy is generated from clean and renewable sources. People used to take action on this day to visit wind farms, meet experts, attend events and support wind energy.

Global Wind Day 2021: History

The European Wind Energy Association (EWEA) and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) coordinate with various networks of partners to celebrate the day. Global Wind Day began globally in Europe in 2007 and 2009.

Global Wind Day 2021: Event

  • People used to travel to coastal and offshore wind fields.
  • Join the campaign and learn about wind energy.
  • Performance turbines have been installed in many cities.
  • Workshops are organized.
  • Wind Parade

Let me tell you that the inaugural year of Global Wind Day was organized by EWEA in 2007. The main objective behind the festival was to coordinate programs organized by national wind energy associations and companies operating in the field of wind energy. In Europe, Wind Day reached about 18 countries and about 35,000 people participated.

In 2008, Global Wind Day reached about 20 European countries and about 100,000 people participated.

  •  Joined the Army with EWEA GWEC in 2009 and coordinated the Global Wand Day program worldwide. In 2009, about 300 events were held in about 35 countries and about 1 million people arrived.
  •  In Portugal in 2009, Global Wind Day was celebrated as a wind parade event.

Many events are held all over the world. In 2018 too, GWEC and WindEurope launched a global photo contest to capture wind power on Global Wind Day.

What is Wind Energy?

The wind is a moving wind and a form of energy. This is due to differences in air pressure within our atmosphere. Under high pressure, the air moves towards areas of low pressure. Tell you that the more the pressure varies, the faster the wind blows. As we know, cyclone Vayu may hit the State of Gujarat. It is also a thunderstorm that can cause landfills. Winds can range from light air to tornadoes and storms or cyclones at speeds of hundreds of kilometers per hour on hot summer days.
When we look at the air, it doesn’t seem to be anything, but its presence can be seen during a storm. Wind can lift roofs from buildings, blow up power lines, push accidents on highways, cars, trucks, etc.

How is wind formed?

It is formed by the uneven temperature of the earth by the sun. You can’t see it but you can feel it. Winds arise when atmospheric pressure varies. Let us understand the events:

On the equator, water and land caused by the sun are as hot as any other part of the world. Therefore, the hot equatorial air increases more in the atmosphere and migrates to the poles. It is known as a low-pressure system. Now, at the same time, cooler or dense air moves on the earth’s surface towards the equator to replace the hot air. It is known as a high-pressure system. Generally, air flies from high-pressure areas to low-pressure areas. And the boundary between these two regions is known as the front. There are different types of air and weather between the fronts. Like prevailing winds that fly from the same direction on a specific region of the earth. And the areas where these prevailing winds are found are known as convergence zones.
