f Offshore Wind Energy: Research, Experimentation, Development (POWERED)
Start date: Feb 28, 2011, End date: Mar 30, 2014 PROJECT  FINISHED 

POWERED aims to define a set of strategies and shared methods for the development of the off-shore wind energy in all the Countries overlooking the Adriatic Sea. Such energetic choice could allow a rapid increase of installations, thanks to the reduction of the problems related to landscape topic that are frequently the main obstacles to the creation of wind parks in high density population territories or in areas with high historical or landscape value. Also the problems related to the transport of the wind turbines of big size should be reduced, especially in Countries like Italy in which the problem of connection between the main and the suburban roads is important, because of the small dimension of the roadway. Industrial ports that overlooking the Adriatic Sea could be assume a decisive role in the development process, becoming a marshalling but also productive areas of the technological components. The main objective of the project is drafting guide lines for the realization of off-shore wind parks in the Adriatic Sea compatible with the planning and conservation policy shared among the project partners. In parallel will be identified development Sea basins for the energetic technology above mentioned. It will allow the defining of the characteristics for a project of electric submarine connection network that will enormously facilitate the exchange of energy power between Countries. The achievement of the projects objectives will be possible thanks to the study concerning the wind resources on the Adriatic Basin, the study will be developed through numerical process and will be validated through testing method. Such validation will be possible thanks to the installation of a network of coastal weather stations and of, at least, ones marine. Such network, at he end of the project, will be functioning and will support weather forecast services.
