Biggest wind power project

Giles Tremlett

Lisbon: Portugal signalled the launch of one of Europe's biggest wind-power projects on Wednesday — a move that will supply enough electricity for 750,000 homes. The contract is the equivalent to a quarter of all the wind power installed in the European Union last year. It will help cement the growing reputation of Portugal — a country importing 86 per cent of its energy needs — as a renewable energy champion. This year, it has already approved the building of the world's largest solar plant. The new wind project will rank Portugal alongside Denmark and Spain as the European countries with the highest proportion of wind energy in the national grid. It will more than double wind-power capacity in Portugal.
