• Powered Project at the event ‘ In Aria’, Cervia, June 6th to 8th

    Powered Project will take part in the first edition of exposhow ‘In Aria’, hosted in Cervia and Milano Marittima, June 6th to 8th. The schedule of the event, realized by Cervia Turismo, offers educational workshops, exhibitions, expo, meetings, shows, art.
    Powered Project will take part in the event ‘In Aria’ with an exhibition stand – where will be shown and distributed informative material regarding the project – and with two meetings, both hosted at the Musa Conference Hall (Magazzini del sale). The first is ‘Project Powered: wind energy in Adriatic sea’ and is scheduled Friday, June 6th, 4:15 pm. The project will be illustrated by Alberto Rebucci (responsible for Powered for the Province of Ravenna, which is a partner of the project), and Renato Ricci (p rofessor at the Polytechnic University of Marche and head of the scientific committee of Powered.
    Successively, Innocenzo Titone, consultant of Micoperi (Micoperi is a company of Ravenna and a project partner), will talk about ‘ The energy outlook : the complementarity of fossil and renewable resources. The contribution of Project Powered’; the head of the anemology sector of Tozzi Group, Sara Gardini, will illustrate the experience of Tozzi Nord in the design and construction of small wind turbines, in connection with the plants built in the Port of Ravenna thanks to Powered. The final speaker will be the Province of Ravenna councillor for Environment Mara Roncuzzi, which will explore the topic of energy choices and environmental protection in the province of Ravenna.
    The second meeting, ‘ History, future and economies in using the air’ (organized by the Province of Ravenna), focuses on the issue of climate change and of weather forecast in Emilia –Romagna. The meeting is scheduled Sunday, June 8th-, at the Musa Conference Room, 6:15 pm. The speakers will be Alberto Rebucci, (responsible for Powered-Province of Ravenna), Carlo Cacciamani (Head of Hydro-Meteo-Climate sector. ARPA Emilia Romagna), and Licia Rubbi (Director of ARPA Ravenna).
    The European project Powered is funded under the IPA Adriatic Cross-border Programme 2007-2013. Through the development of sophisticated mathematical models and data that will be collected from the network of anemometers that will be built along both coasts of the Adriatic sea, the project aims to assess whether and where there are wind conditions and environmental sustainability to verify the feasibility to build offshore wind farms also in the Adriatic sea. This in order to increase significantly the contribution of renewable energy in the macro-region Adriatic-Ionian of the European Union.
