To investigate a potential for renewable energy and increase social awareness on sustainable energy systems several pilot activities related to wind, biomass and solar energy have been implemented:

  • Two wind measuring systems that constantly monitored wind speed, wind direction, temperature and humidity has delivered a key input for wind resource assessment studies; such study is usually the first step on the way to wind power development in a study area.
  • Activities recognizing biomass potential have lead to identification of biomass combustion and gasification as efficient processes and aimed at promoting biomass utilization as a cheap and effective renewable energy source.
  • The installation of pilot hybrid power plant based on photovoltaic panel, vertical axis wind turbine and fuel cell represents a novel development in renewable technologies, which can be considered for application in cities.
