New GWO publication: a review of wind dynamic in Muras
10 March, 2022
A collaboration between the Observatory and the City Council of Muras has led to our latest publication, a book entitled “Wind energy in Muras: analysis of its territorial, economic, environmental and energy impact.” In this 150-page text, GWO researchers Simón Fernández and Montero Muñoz make a detailed outline of the main components of wind development in Muras with special attention on economic, environmental and territorial aspects.
The book thoroughly depicts wind farms; it presents maps for each of the 19 wind farms based either totally or partially within the Muras municipality. In addition to energy information, these maps include environmental, urban planning and the delimitation of areas for the exclusion of competitors. Its novelty is the result of a survey given to local citizens to assess their perception of wind energy.
This book, solely in paper-format, is owned by The City Council of Muras, which has distributed it among their neighbors and social entities. It has also been deposited in the main Galician university libraries.
