Renewable energies

INEGI’s tradition on renewable energies has been remarkable, particularly through wind energy. The Institute operates about 200 meteorological networks spread all over Portugal and has been responsible for carrying out feasibility studies on wind potential for producing electricity on most Portuguese wind parks.

Recently, INEGI has directed its activity toward other areas, such as converting used vegetable oils into hydrogen and biodiesel. For that, INEGI has invested in laboratory facilities and applied for R&D projects in these fields.
