ENDESA Starts Up The Poggi Alti Wind Farm In Italy

New York NY (SPX) Jul 16, 2007
Endesa Italia has started up the Poggi Alti wind farm, the largest in Tuscany, with installed capacity of 20MW. The Poggi Alti wind farm was built at a cost of Euro 25 million with minimal impact on the surrounding landscape respecting the environment. The facility has ten 2MW turbines with a total installed capacity of 20MW. Annual output is expected to be around 40.9GWh, equivalent to energy consumption of 19,000 households.

The farm is equipped with 112 meter high Gamesa G-90 turbines, 67 meter high masts and blades measuring 90 meters in diameter.

The wind farm will result in environmental benefits in the form of annual savings of approximately 4,300 tonnes of oil and 27,000 tonnes of CO2.

Poggi Alti is the third wind farm ENDESA started up in Italy in the last 10 months following the Vizzini (Catania) farm and the Trapani farm (May 2007) in the provinces of Gibellina, Salaparuta and Santa Ninfa in the Belice Valley.

The next facility to begin operations in September will be the Monte Cute wind farm in Brindisi de Montagna in the province of Potenza. Current installed capacity in Italy totals 152MW with a further 196 MW under construction.

The addition of this wind farm to ENDESA's generation business is a further step in the company's renewables plan which aims to install nearly 400MW of wind energy in Italy through 2009. The wind farm forms part of ENDESA's Strategic Plan, representing another milestone in the implementation of the group's global environmental and sustainable development policy.

Eco-Architecture Takes Root In Thailand
Bangkok (AFP) July 16, 2007
Soontorn Boonyatikarn is a man of the times, throwing around terms like "eco-design" as he enthuses about the charcoal water recycling system at the Bangkok home he designed for his family two years ago. His Bio-Solar House -- designed not only to be energy efficient but to produce energy -- was inspired by the humble mango tree, echoing the ideas of some of the brightest international names working in eco-architecture today.
