Wind energy is becoming attractive to serious investors and this is important for Russia, which has the world's largest potential for the use of wind energy. On June 15, many countries celebrate the Day of the Wind - a new holiday that has been celebrated only for the past few years. The main events take place in the EU countries, where wind energy has reached the greatest development. The symbol of the Wind Day in the European Union is a wind turbine blade with a length of 29.5 meters, installed in front of the headquarters of the European Commission in Brussels. In Russia, the Wind Day is still celebrated only by experts. The wind energy industry is undergoing significant changes today. "Currently, most of the wind turbines are built offshore, as this is where the strongest winds blow, " - note in the Renewable Energy Laboratory of the Danish Technical University. Experts from the Danish Technical University expect the market for offshore wind turbines to grow by 54% in 2012 compared to 2011. In order to reach the EU target of 20% share of renewable energy sources by 2020, the average annual growth of the wind power industry must be 28% , experts from the Danish Technical University calculated. Russia has a powerful wind energy potential, estimated at 40 billion kWh of electricity per year, so the operation of large and small wind power plants (WPPs) in the vast Russian space could be highly efficient. Such areas as the Gulf of Ob, the Kola Peninsula, most of the coastal strip of the Far East, according to the world classification, are among the most windy zones.
