Happy Global Wind Day 2017: Let's go fly a kite!

    On this June 15, perhaps for the first time ever in LM Wind Power, we are holding a worldwide campaign to promote Global Wind Day and the Case for Wind! Check out the many ways you can join our celebration this year.

    On this Global Wind Day, June 15, we have many reasons to get excited about the wind industry – including its support for our own jobs! In fact, today there are more than 1 million wind industry jobs worldwide, and this is projected to double by 2030.

    Wind also helps provide clean, renewable energy to communities across the globe. Just one turbine with our 88.4 meter blades – the world’s longest – can provide energy for 10,000 households.

    A wind turbine combats climate change, by mitigating CO2 emissions throughout its 20-year lifetime. After just 3-9 months of operation, the turbine has already balanced the amount of CO2 emitted during its full life cycle – from manufacturing, to decommission. In 2016, wind power avoided over 637 million tons of CO2 emissions globally!

    This is part of our Case for Wind, and it’s a case so clear that we think even a child could understand.

    Share this tale of a cleaner future with story-lovers of all ages: "Once upon a Wind."  

    Download our original fairytale or view it as a flipbook here.



    Together, let’s celebrate Global Wind Day!

    Today around the world, our colleagues are engaging their local communities in our excitement around wind energy, and sharing why we believe wind is the energy source for a cleaner future.

    Some of our plants have organized kite flying in the park, others are visiting elementary schools to share the "Once upon a Wind" fairytale and others are holding coloring contests for the children of employees, just to name a few. Stay tuned to our News from LM Places for photos and highlights from these events over the coming weeks.  

    You can also join the celebration yourself! Share your #CaseForWind on social media. How has wind power benefitted you, your family or your community? We’ve made our Case for Wind in 10 Blade Points. What’s yours?

    Remember to post photos from your #GlobalWindDay celebrations on social media, and tag LM Wind Power, for a chance to be featured on our website and intranet.

    Have a happy Global Wind Day! Thank you for helping to secure our future by supporting homegrown, clean, affordable and renewable wind energy.
