Renewable energies: a genuine challenge for Normandy
Heat production: wood energy, thermal solar energy... Electricity production: photovoltaic sensors, wind turbines or micro hydroelectric power plants... 3 rural excellence clusters focusing on emerging energy solutions



RENEWABLE ENERGY (LATE 2009 - CUMULATED FIGURES FOR NORMANDY°
- Heat production:
Wood energy: automatic boilers (wood shreds or granules) or manual boilers (logs); independent devices (stoves, enclosed room heaters, cookers...). 1,597 facilities; around 327 million kWh of energy produced or substituted.
Thermal solar energy: with an average of 1,700 hours of sunshine per year, Normandy is a propitious region for solar energy. A well-dimensioned solar water heater covers, on average, 60% of a household's needs in hot water (virtual independence from April to October). Solar water heaters; combined solar energy systems; connexion to a heating network; connexion of a household to an existing heating network supplied with renewable energy or installation of a cogeneration system. 1,244 facilities; around 2,9 million kWh of energy produced or substituted.
- Electricity production
Anyone can produce electricity from an electric generator supplied from a renewable energy source: photovoltaic sensors, wind turbines or micro hydroelectric power plants. The resulting electricity is either stored in batteries for personal use, or reinjected in the distribution network.
Photovoltaics (solar energy production): 508 facilities; around 3.3 million kWh of energy produced or substituted.
Wind energy (electricity produced by aerogenerators): 157 facilities (number of masts): 66 < 100 kW, 91> 100 kW; around 390 million kWh of energy produced or substituted.
Micro hydraulics (small hydraulic plants: mills): 42 facilities; around 57 million kWh of energy produced or substituted.
A project to install an offshore wind farm including 80 wind turbines off the Courseulles-sur-Mer coast was announced in January 2011.


RURAL EXCELLENCE CLUSTERS
- Pays du Bocage Rural Excellence Cluster (Orne): a wood energy excellence cluster. Development of the wood energy
sector: hedge cutting and trimming equipment, purchase of grinders and creation of storage platforms; use of this natural
resource to provide wood energy: supply materials, community boilers, implementation of heat networks and training of
professionals involved.
- Pays du Bessin au Virois Rural Excellence Cluster (Calvados): an excellence cluster focusing on the management of local
waste and its development into bioresources. Creation of a platform for the transformation of wood waste into wood chips,
purchase of a dump truck for household delivery, creation of a composting platform receiving algae, shells and ashes.
- Parc des Marais du Cotentin et du Bessin Rural Excellence Cluster (Manche): Ecosite du Fleurion programme – Renewable
energies and Green building serving sustainable development (involving 4 major challenges: environmental preservation,
creation of a Green building cluster, demonstration and/or development of alternative energies (wind, photovoltaics,
geothermal energy...) together with exemplary sustainable rural development.
