Offshore windfarm Wind energy has won a "truly global" level of support, the European Wind Energy Association (EWEA) has stated.

Today (June 15th) is Global Wind Day and events to mark the occasion are being staged in places such as Sweden, Canada and Brazil.

India and Argentina were also said to be getting behind the worldwide initiative, which has been organised by the EWEA and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) to showcase the advantages of this renewable energy source.

Arthouros Zervos, president of the EWEA, said this has proved that wind energy now has strong worldwide support.

"Public acceptance of wind energy is immensely important for keeping up the momentum of sustained growth," he commented.

Klaus Rave, chairman of the GWEC, added that Global Wind Day is a "fantastic opportunity" to show people across the globe that a "genuine energy revolution" is achievable.

This comes after the two organisations predicted that this year's Global Wind Day would be the biggest in the event's history.
