Windpower TV - Portuguese energy minister Artur Trindade

PORTUGAL: The poor growth of Portugal's wind capacity is down to the markets and not the country's energy policy, claims its energy minister, Artur Trindade.

Speaking at EWEA 2013, Trindade said no regulation had been changed on existing projects. The reason investment has slowed down is down to the financial markets.

"I've been asking [developers] why are you not complete the capacity that has been granted to you. We have a large amount of wind capacity that is already contracted by the system.

"So developers have to build it and they have to honour the terms of the contract they have won."
