General view of Europe's biggest wind energy park in the northern region of Viana do Castelo, 26 November 2008. Portuguese Economy Minister Manuel Pinho inaugurated what was described as Europe's biggest wind energy park in the northern region of Viana do Castelo. The Alto Minho I park began generating energy already a year ago, gradually increasing its production to the full amount. The 120 turbines divided between five sub-stations will produce 530 gigawatts annually or one per cent of Portugal's energy.

The European Commission has approved, under EU State aid rules, a €5.4 billion scheme to support electricity production from renewable sources in Italy. The measure will contribute to the EU environmental objectives without unduly distorting competition.
Italy intends to introduce a new aid measure to support electricity production from renewable sources, like onshore wind, solar photo-voltaic, hydroelectric and sewage gases. The scheme will help Italy reach its renewable energy targets and will be applicable until 2021.
