From a virtual standing start two years ago, Portugal´s installed wind capacity had pushed up by the end of 2003 to close to 300 MW. This year is proving to be even busier. By the end of the decade, if a number of elements fall into place, the expectations are that the Iberian peninsula´s rising star could be looking at well over 3,000 MW. The official government goal is even more ambitious - 3,750 MW of wind capacity by 2010.
