In a bid to raise awareness of the need to use more sustainable energy sources, between 15 and 20 small wind turbines are being installed at various locations in the Portuguese capital of Lisbon as part of the Wind Parade Lisboa 2008 project. Culminating with a celebration of Wind Day on June 15, the project is promoted by For the Future and Energia Lateral and supported by the European Wind Energy Association, the Portuguese renewables association and the Lisbon Municipal Assembly. Each turbine, worth around EUR 15,000, will have a private company sponsor says the project's Phillipe Dewerbe, but they "will later be donated to the city."
