Proposals in for Thermie program 1998

A total of 37 wind energy proposals, plus one proposal with a wind element in the small hydro sector, have been received in Brussels in response to the EC's 1997-98 invitation for bids under its Thermie energy demonstration programme. "The evaluation process is just starting now and the results are expected to be published in the beginning of summer," says Alexandros Kotronaros of the energy directorate, DG XVII. The industry was invited to apply for subsidies for wind farms and individual units which demonstrate "innovative technical solutions" to reducing cost, improving public acceptability by minimising environmental impact, and realising the potential of "unconventional" sites. Bids were also requested for demonstration of technically innovative wind turbines for which the research and development phase is complete. In both cases "larger size" wind turbine models were preferred. The deadline for this most recent call for Thermie proposals was January 30.
