Pilot Overview

Portugal currently has 5.5 GW of installed wind power capacity, which contributes 24% of Portugal’s electricity demand. By 2030, an additional 9.0 GW of onshore and 0.3 GW of offshore capacity are planned, not only through new installations but also through repowering the existing ones.

Pilot Challanges

The feasibility of these expansion plans is highly dependent on the communication and cooperation between stakeholders, grid operators, authorities and also local communities, to ensure low environmental impact and high public support.

The particularity of this pilot is that WIMBY addresses and enriches the Web-GIS tool through interaction with companies that are responsible for almost all the installed wind power capacity in Portugal.
