|Abstract:||During the last years Portugal has been facing a massive increase of renewable energy power plants in the Electric Power system, mainly driven by the wind power connected. The wind power represents for the country a key opportunity to invest in one energy source that is naturally available and at the same time represents a reduction on the dependency of foreign energy imports and carbon dioxide emissions. In the year 2005, the Portuguese government released one Public Tender process for the installation, in a first phase, of 1200MW of wind energy.
