Coastal areas offer a wide range of opportunities to produce wind, current and tidal derived renewable energy. The WICO project partners have identified small wind systems as a technology suitable for integration along the coast to exploit the presence of onshore and offshore winds.
WICO project aims:
The project partners will exchange and bench mark their experiences and knowledge in order to produce guidelines for the installation of small wind systems along coastlines which will provide key information and solutions to a number of issues:
The WICO partners will also be identifying and developing best practice in the public sector to promote successful large-scale deployment of renewable energy schemes in order to maximize benefit to the regional economy and environment and society.
The project also aims to develop a transferable tool to allow both the sharing of technical information on new generation systems and the knowledge required to overcome barriers to the wider use of this technology including policies, economic viability, financial incentives, awareness etc.
