Wind energy does not need to be imported. Wind turbines installed around the world replace expensive, unreliable and polluting fossil fuel imports, as well as bringing jobs and cleaner air.

Mid-June represents the moment each year when Europe has used up its own energy and must switch to energy imports.

This is why the annual day for discovering wind energy – Global Wind Day, 15 June – will in 2014 focus on energy independence around the world and how wind energy can help.
