Powered Project at Key Energy Fair, press release

A ‘Powered Project’ exhibition stand at the Fair Key Energy

Rimini November 6th to 9th.

On November 6th, the conference ‘Compared scenarios

for offshore wind: Northern Europe and the Mediterranean.

The role of P.O.W.E.R.E.D Project ‘


Powered Project (Project of Offshore Wind Energy: Research, Experimentation, Development), will have a stand at the ‘Key Energy’ Fair, hosted in Rimini 2013 november 6th to 9th. The subject of the Fair this year is ‘A new green deal to Italy’. The location of the stand is the no. 053 – Pavilion D7. Powered project has organized a public event, ‘Compared scenarios for offshore wind: Northern Europe and the Mediterranean. The role of the Project P.O.W.E.R.E.D’, that will be hosted November 6th in Camelia hall (Ist Floor Hall B6 ). The meeting will be chaired by Mara Roncuzzi –  the Cancellor of Environment for Province of Ravenna – and by Alberto Rebucci (Supervisor of Production activity and EC Policies for the Province of Ravenna), will begin at 2 pm: after the registration of participants the conference will start with the speeches of Corrado Clini (Director General Ministry of the Environment) , Mara Roncuzzi (Cancellor of Environment for Province of Ravenna) and Mauro Di Dalmazio (Councillor for the environment and energy Abruzzo Region).

At the end the program schedules a discussion panel and a debate.

The aim of the European project Powered – funded by the IPA Adriatic Cross-border Programme 2007-2013 – is to check if and where there are wind conditions to invest in large offshore wind farms: thanks to the development of sophisticated mathematical models and data collected from the anemometer network. The data will be ‘certified’ and will provide useful elements to install any wind farm along the Adriatic coast, starting from the major ports.
