green energy uk Applauds Efforts of Alternative Energy Awareness Days
Posted: Friday 15 June, 2012
green energy uk, a leading provider of eco-friendly electricity, has highlighted the importance of awareness campaigns to educate people about cleaner, greener energy – coinciding with Global Wind Day. Taking place on 15th June, Global Wind Day is an annual event worldwide that raises the profile of wind power and the possibilities it has to change the world.
The campaign, says green energy uk, is an effective way to educate people about alternative ways of creating sustainable energy, and the pioneering work in this arena.
green energy uk CEO Douglas Stewart said: "Awareness days of this nature provide an excellent opportunity for education across both the business and consumer worlds, and to those of all ages, about the ways in which clean energy can be produced. This particular campaign has used some creative approaches to engage people in the run up to the awareness day, such as photography competitions, five-a-side football tournaments and wind farm visits for local schools.
"The message behind this campaign, which we support, is that green energy supplies that can fuel growing economies and help combat climate change are an option anyone can choose as part of the quest to 'go green'. Whilst 'energy switch' has become a buzzword in recent years, quite often being used in the context of cost-saving efforts, now more and more people are looking to switch to green energy as part of reducing their carbon footprint. Global Wind Day is a great vehicle to educate people in taking a step in the right direction towards doing just that alongside other initiatives such as Earth Hour and World Environment Day."
