Government shifts renewable energy policy from wind to solar  

Credit:  By Ivan Camilleri | December 22, 2014 | www.timesofmalta.com ~~

Wind farm projects have been ruled out as studies indicated they are not possible or feasible in Malta, the permanent secretary in the Energy Ministry, Ronald Mizzi, said today.

Addressing a news conference this morning, Mr Mizzi said the government was now basing its renewable energy policy to solar farms.

According to new government plans, he said, Malta needed 2.7 square kilometres to produce five per cent of its renewable energy targets by 2010.

Asked whether this was achievable in such a short time and within the space available, Mr Mizzi said that the government was positive that although it was an ambitious target, it would be met.

Mr Mizzi was speaking during the launch, by the planning authority, of a draft policy on solar farms for public consultation.
