Wind project in collaboration with private developer
1 x 3 MW wind turbines
6.000 MWh Renewable Energy
3,500,000 €

This project consists of 6 wind turbines in Trois-Ponts, a municipality in the eastern part of Belgium. The private project developer Electrabel-Engie had there been developing a wind project close to their pumped storage power plant. In 2015 Courant d'Air got in touch with Electrabel-Engie and suggested to open their project to local citizens. That was something that they hadn't thought of before. Courant d'Air organised several meetings with the developer and the municipal council and managed to convince both stakeholders. Courant d'Air signed a contract with Electrabel-Engie and managed to get its hands on one wind turbine. This implies that the local cooperative will own, manage and operate their installation. Courant d'Air committed to mobilize the citizens of Trois-Ponts and those of the municipalities nearby. The cooperative and the private developer have applied for a license and are now waiting for the answer.
