English wind firm studies joint venture potential

A grant for ECU 130,000 under the European Commission's Joint Opportunities (JOP) programme has been granted to British company Borderwind for a feasibility study for establishing a wind energy development company in the Czech Republic with a local partner. The Czech company would operate along similar lines to Borderwind, explains David Still of the UK company. The study will look into the potential for wind development. "We know that there are some turbines there already but we do not know how much we can do, or where," he says. "So we secured some funding to do some research." According to Still, Borderwind has identified a couple of potential partners for the study which should be complete by the middle of 1997. "By then we will know whether we go on to form a joint venture, or not," he says.
