This book gives an overview of Community demonstration projects on autonomous and wind-diesel systems. The objectives are to:- assess the state of advancement of the projects, aiming at wind-diesel systems (including projects where wind turbines are connected to a diesel-based grid) and autonomous systems; share the experience gained by contractors; facilitate possible cooperation between manufacturers; inform the utilities of the state of the art; stimulate the replication of successful projects; and to report on a visit to the wind turbine on Mykonos. The book includes presentations made on 17 projects. It will be of interest to civil, mechanical and aeronautical engineers, architects, meteorologists, and those involved with the development of wind energy.
