From Meeting in Montenegro a strong push to achieve the objectives of the Project Powered

The 30 and 31 October was held in Podgorica, in Montenegro, the new official meeting between the partners of the European project Powered (Project of Offshore Wind Energy: Research, Experimentation, Development) Project co-financed by the IPA CBC Adriatic, to take stock of progress and the steps planned to achieve the objectives of the project: collect, through the use of sophisticated equipment anemometer and innovative mathematical models, scientific data in order to assess the technical and economic conditions to encourage investment in wind power plants offshore in the Adriatic Sea. The most important innovation emerged in the report of Prof. Ricci Polytechnic University of Marche is that, having dealt with and resolved positively understandable legal technical difficulties, by the end of November will be released on the European call for tenders to identify specialized subjects to be entrusted with the implementation of the support towers and the installation of a first block of anemometers on both sides of the 'Adriatic. That provided by the project is a network of anemometers Powered newly developed: each device for measuring the force of the wind towers will be installed on 45 meters, in turn placed both on land and at sea. This will make it possible to detect accurately the real potential of wind in the Adriatic and the ability to exploit it to operate production facilities offshore wind. The data thus obtained have an accuracy maximum: for this large international banks consider them evidence to be able to decide on the eligibility of investments. Among the solutions for installations, must be recorded in the sea off the coast of Marche, for which we will use a platform Eni hundred feet high on which will be built a tower as high anemometer. The Director General of the energy sector in the Abruzzo region (lead partner of the project Powered) Antonio Sorgi has also made, with the collaboration of all partners, careful analysis of the progress of the project and individual work packages. Among the elements to be reported is the 'heart' of the project, analysis of wind conditions in the Adriatic has already made a significant step forward, thanks to the good work of the Polytechnic University of Marche, coordinated by Professor Renato Ricci. The mathematical model used by researchers of the Marche is very sophisticated and presents a totally new: the model is able to calculate the power of the wind with a detail to a square kilometer, thereby providing a very reliable conditions the force of the wind on the Adriatic, which will be further verified by actual data provided by the network anemometer Powered. Thanks to the model developed was confirmed that the potential of wind in Adriatic grow proceeding from north to south while presenting variability also locally significant.

In this regard, it is also possible, at the end of the project, deepen even the best wind potential in some coastal areas of the project partners are potentially interesting for wind installations, such as those of the Adriatic ports that present suitable characteristics. The aim is to contribute to the gradual transformation of the Adriatic seaports in modern 'green port', in which grow progressively the contribution of renewable energy.

The meeting also gave a positive account of the progress of the parties relating to the laws of the various states and environmental impact issues, starting an argument on the guidelines to be developed to make it viable and sustainable development of off shore in the growing areas of the Adriatic.

Of great importance was the contribution of the partner host the meeting: the representative of the Ministry of Energy of Montenegro has shown the growing commitment of his country, which is in pre-EU accession, to implement the European Directive 2009/28/EC, the so-called '20 20 20'And, particularly, to strengthen the commitment to the development of renewable sources. The strategy of the Balkan country is based on the further development of hydropower (that already represents a significant share of the nation's energy production), the strong development of solar energy, both thermal and photovoltaic, and exploitation of onshore and offshore wind potential. On the latter, Montenegro has authorized the construction of two wind farms on Mozura (46 MW) e su Krnovo (72 MW) and is working with some European countries, particularly active in the wind energy sector, to carry out a detailed examination of the possibilities to build wind farms in the coastal area of ​​Ulcjni ​​and Bar. Hence also the strong interest of Montenegro for the project Powered: scientifically explore the full potential of exploitation of the resource in order to achieve, after, with the help of investors, in particular, significant wind farms offshore.

At the conclusion of the meeting the partners agreed that the next meeting will take place in late January 2013 in Albania, a Tirana, and will have as its main theme the results of European race to assign the installation of anemometers and how to install the same on all the area provided. It was also agreed to organize during the spring 2013 a series of conferences on specific themes of the project Powered: Ravenna (wind and green port), Venice (climate change, renewable energy and role of wind energy) and Ancona (physical and mathematical models for the development of off shore in the Adriatic).


The project Powered, which is a partner in the region Molise, will be staged in Brussels. Will be explained in detail in its aims and Wednesday 10 October, in the Belgian city, during the debate on 'Adriatic-Ionian: transnational cooperation actions, crossboarder interregional and to prepare the way to go '.

The project's objective is to verify whether and under what conditions it is possible in the Adriatic Sea exploitation of wind energy, So in a way compatible with the environment.

The round table was attended speakers of international, including ambassadors, experts, administrators, presidents of regions and Member of the European Commission.

Wednesday 10 October, a Brussels, at 9, the space of Banca Monte Paschi Belgium (Auderghem Avenue 22-28 – 1040), during the debate on 'Adriatic-Ionian: transnational cooperation actions, crossboarder interregional and to prepare the way to go‘, details will be presented and purpose of the project Powered.

This is the most important project funded by the Cross-Border Programme Ipa Adriatico with a European funding of about 4 milioni and 400mila euro. Translated l 'installation of a network of anemometers at sea and along the coasts of the Adriatic, on poles of freely variable height between the 40 e i 60 sophisticated meters to collect scientific data on the evolution of the climate: the objective is determine whether the conditions exist to invest in offshore wind in Adriatic. Already in recent months, Environment Minister Corrado Clini has confirmed as Powered able to represent the model and define the trace of the work for the development of offshore wind energy in the Adriatic.

It should be emphasized, also, In Brussels the project Powered (Project of Offshore Wind Energy: Research, Experimentation, Development) will be illustrated by Antonio Sorgi (Director-General for the Presidency, European Affairs, Energy and environmental assessment of the Abruzzo Region).

L'evento, that is part of the '10a European Week of Regions and Cities’ (in Bruxelles dall'8 all'11 Ottobre 2012) is organized by the Region of Abruzzo (which is the leading Region) together with the partners of the 'Adriatic-Ionian': Republic of Slovenia (SI), Basilicata Region (IT), Dubrovnik - Neretva Region (HR), Emilia Romagna Region (IT), Cantone Erzegovina-Neretva (BH), Marche Region (IT), Molise Region (IT), Nisava, Districts Toplica and Pirot (RS), Puglia Region (IT), Republika Srpska (BH), Region of Sicily (IT), Distretti Sumadija-Morava (RS).

Regarding the program, the work will be introduced by Ferdinand Nelli Fierce (Ambassador, Permanent Representative of Italy to the European Commission), Maria Damanaki (Member of the European Commission, responsible for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries) and Gianni Chiodi (President of the Region of Abruzzo).

Then there will be two round tables. The first, It is presieduta Pascal Goergen (Secretary General of the Assembly of European Regions, ARE) will take care of ‘Cultural resources of economic cooperation, social and institutional’.
