Moura, Portugal is becoming increasingly well-known for its alternative energy initiatives. The latest is the Sunflower project, which also involves communities in seven other European Union countries. The aim is to transform communities into a "Zero Carbon Community." The IEE seeks to convert the communities into areas free of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, where only renewable energies are used. Portugal has one of the largest Solar Energy facilities in the world, powering 30,000 homes, and saving more than 30,000 tons a year in greenhouse gas emissions.
The world's first commercial wave energy project is also in Portugal ashore at Agucadoura, that began delivering wave-generated energy to Portugal in 2006. This lucrative energy source brings 2.25 megawatts and powers 1,500 homes through the national state run electricity grid system.
The goal of IGS is to quicken the adoption of green, clean and sustainable business practices, technologies and solutions. IGS will be open to the public the last two days with donation going to charities in the host city.
