Global Wind Day Power Failure


Yesterday was Global Wind Day, a worldwide event organised by the European Wind Energy Association and the Global Wind Energy Council to help the public discover “wind, its power and the possibilities it holds to reshape our energy systems, decarbonise our economies and boost jobs and growth“.

To celebrate, Gaia has collated the UK Wind energy output for yesterday and plotted it against the total potential wind capacity:

Quote of the Day
