Brazilian land secured for wind development

Ecoprojeto, the Brazilian subsidiary of German wind development company Ökovest, has secured 1000 hectares of land it believes is suitable for wind development in Rio Grande do Sul. The parent company, based in Oldenburg, reports that applications for construction permits have been lodged, while wind measuring at the sites is planned. Proinfa, Brazil's support program for the development of up to 3300 MW of wind, biomass and small hydro power, should provide a positive climate for development, it says, especially with regulations passed in December that envision a guaranteed 15 year purchase agreement for the electricity generated.
