Tags: Global Wind Day Celebration June 15, U.S. WindMade Campaign Launch
Global Wind Day celebration on June 15 will feature the opening of a wind-energy exhibition in Berlin’s German Technology Museum and an event in New York for the U.S. launching of WindMade, a company-certification program to promote wind power. See http://windmade.org/
Here is a quick excerpt from the group’s new website. Click and watch a very informative YouTube video about this program. I like the concept although I would have preferred something more inclusive, i.e. renewable energy made rather than WindMade.
What is WindMade?
Over the years, generations have made choices about the things they buy and use. And, in doing so, have made their mark on the world.
Today we have that chance again. Today, we have an opportunity to change how the world consumes energy, one product at a time.
Introducing WindMade™, an initiative leading to the first global consumer label identifying products and companies made with wind energy. WindMade™ will be dedicated to increasing corporate investments in wind power by informing consumers about companies’ use of wind energy, and increasing demand for products that embrace this clean and renewable energy source.
The WindMade™ label will provide qualifying companies the ability to effectively communicate to consumers a commitment to wind energy that differentiates their brand, and signals a strong commitment to renewable energy.
Because now more than ever, we believe that one of the most important ingredients in a product is the energy used to produce it, and, as the world struggles with the increasing impact of climate change, we need companies that are WindMade™.
About Global Wind Day June 15
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 change our world.
It is also a day for discovery of the work that has already begun by pioneers around the world. In more than 75 countries around the world, wind farms are in operation, generating energy from a clean and renewable source.
Thousands of individuals are involved in the production of energy from the wind, but for many people, wind energy is a mystery. Global Wind Day is the day when you can visit wind farms, meet experts, attend events and find out everything you want to know about wind energy.
The European Wind Energy Association – EWEA – and the Global Wind Energy Council – GWEC – coordinate the Global Wind Day through a network of partners. The day started as a European one in 2007 and went Global in 2009. On 15 June, thousands of public events are organised all over the world.
