A group of highly qualified businesses in the wind energy sector and a strong maritime industry, with highly advanced port infrastructures and ancillary services: that is the foundation on which the Basque Government and the Basque Energy Board (EVE) are seeking to build a real "smart energy revolution" in the Basque Country, with the offshore wind sector as one of its mainstays.
To bring together what these firms and organisations have to offer, consolidate their position as technology leaders and identify new opportunities, the "Basque Country" brand has been created. This brand was presented at the EWEA Offshore Fair in Frankfurt last week. The event featured Javier Zarraonandia, Basque Government Director for Energy, Mines and Industrial

In order to establish whether a particular site is suitable for a wind power project or not, investors, project engineers and system operators need to obtain an assessment. In so doing they must ensure that they take into account any uncertainties relating to meteorology and technology - something which will, in turn, have a direct effect on the funding of the project by the participating banks. The Karlsruhe weather service provider EWC is exploring new ways to minimise risks of this nature. In collaboration with the Zentrum für Sonnenenergie- und Wasserstoff-Forschung Baden-Württemberg (Centre for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg, ZSW), an innovative method for obtaining long term corre
