Global Wind Day is a worldwide event that occurs annually on 15 June. It is a day for discovering wind energy, its power and the possibilities it holds to reshape our energy systems, decarbonise our economies and boost jobs and growth.
Wind Energy Ireland have launched a new video, Creating Jobs, Supporting Communities, which profiles four Irish companies working today in supporting the development of Irish on and offshore wind farms. The video, and the KPMG research, highlights that wind energy isn’t just about cutting our carbon emissions – as critical as that might be – but as Declan Corrigan at WTE sums up at the end, “Wind energy in Ireland is about much more than a wind turbine spinning at the side of the M7. It means salaries. It means investment. It means growing local businesses and it means more funding for local communities”.
