Planning And Engagement Arenas For Renewable Energy LandscapeS

International, inter-sectoral and multidisciplinary collaboration between five countries, thirteen institutions working together, three countries and institutions acting as consultants

PEARLS is reinforcing the commitment of the population to  secure, clean and efficient energy as actors in spatial planning and social innovation in Renewable Energy Landscapes (REL) driving Mediterranean countries vision and experience to the rest of Europe

This project will bring a step change to the way that REL are addressed by providing crucial support for the Pan-European Energy Challenge

“Mire vuesa merced –respondió Sancho- que aquellos que allí se parecen no son gigantes, sino molinos de viento, y lo que en ellos parecen brazos son las aspas, que, volteadas por el viento, hacen andar la pierda del Molino.”

Miguel de Cervantes – Don Quijote de La Mancha

“Look, your worship,” said Sancho; “what we see there are not giants but windmills, and what seem to be their arms are the sails that turned by the wind make the millstone go.”

Amareleja full of sun

Rises the sun behind the hill
And with it comes the new day
Spreads the light in the horizon
Rises the sun behind the hill
You’re our energy

So many hours, so many days
So much sun, a vastness
To renew the energies
So many hours, so many days
It’s the best solution

Amareleja you’re talked about
In you have no equal
Beautiful blessed land
Amareleja you’re talked about
For the power plant is born


Nasce o sol atrás do monte
E com ele o novo dia
Estende a luz no horizonte
Nasce o sol atrás do monte
És a nossa energia

Tantas horas, tantos dias
Tanto sol, uma imensidão
Renovar as energias
Tantas horas, tantos dias
É a melhor solução

Amareleja és falada
Em calor não tens igual
Bela terra abençoada
Amareleja és falada
Pois já nasceu a central
