Our readers’ favorites last month were stories on the future of the energy markets, resident-centered urban planning and a solution that could change the wind power sector. The piece on corporate power purchase agreements, authored by top lawyers from CMS, was the most read this time.

1 – One alternative to state subsidy schemes is the corporate power purchase agreement

To date, renewable energy projects in the Balkans have been supported by traditional feed-in tariff subsidy schemes (FiT). Some countries in the region have begun to implement alternative schemes, such as feed-in premiums (FiP). Others, such as Serbia, are seriously considering a transition to competitive auctions.

2 – Vienna is the greenest in the group of the 50 most visited cities on the planet

Resonance Consultancy added a green index to its Best Cities methodology and the Austrian capital got the highest grades.

3 – A new wood structure intended to hold a wind turbine is as strong as steel

Modvion built an experimental wooden wind turbine tower on Bjorko island near the city of Gothenburg and said it would make the power production technology climate-neutral from the start. It is the highest object of its kind in Europe so far.
