The European project P.O.W.E.R.E.D. (Project of Offshore Wind Energy: Research, Experimentation, Development), funded by the IPA ADRIATIC CBC 2007-2013, sees the Marche Polytechnic University as European Scientific Responsible of an action aimed at the development of offshore wind energy in the Adriatic Sea Basin. The project is configured as a planning tool that, starting from the identification of the wind potential of the Adriatic basin, comes to the definition of proper GUIDELINES for the correct installation of offshore wind farms.
