|CREATING A WIND POWER CLUSTER
[2005...] INTELI assisted the Ministry of Economy in the development of a system of indicators and criteria for evaluating bids associated with a tender to supply wind power to the electric grid. In 2005, a call tender for a total of 1,500 MW of wind power was issued. In order to take advantage of this investment, INTELI conceived the development of an industrial cluster associated with the production of wind power equipment. As a result, the tender included the contributions of INTELI for a system of indicators and criteria for evaluating bids. A new industrial cluster was developed in Portugal, representing an investment of more than 300 million Euros and more than 3,200 new direct jobs.
ASSESSING THE ECONOMIC IMPACTS OF A WAVE ENERGY CLUSTER IN THE PORTUGUESE ECONOMY
 INTELI supported an Energy Utility defining and calculating the economic impact induced by the creation of an industrial cluster related with the production of wave energy equipment. The innovation department of an Energy Utility commissioned to INTELI a study about the economic impact of an industrial cluster related with the production of wave energy equipment, to submit to the Portuguese Government. INTELI (1) calculated the expected turnover, exports and employment of a future wave energy equipment production cluster considering not only different scenarios to the Portuguese and World wave energy markets for a 20 years period of time but also the capabilities of the Portuguese industry and (2) suggested a roadmap to ensure the strategy success.
NATIONAL ENERGY STRATEGY 2020
 Rapporteur of the National Energy Strategy for 2020 to the Portuguese Ministry of Economy, Innovation and Development. INTELI assumed the role of Rapporteur of the National Energy Strategy for 2020. This task involved a high number of meetings with the most relevant stakeholders in the energy sector in Portugal, including Ministries (Economy; Environment; Agriculture; Defense; Education), Municipalities, energy utilities, energy infra-structures managers, investors, energy equipment producers, etc.
STRATEGIC ENERGY ACTION PLAN
[2010-2011] INTELI defined the Strategic Energy Action Plan for a Municipality in the scope of the Covenant of Mayors. INTELI developed a Baseline Emissions Inventory and defined the activities and measures to achieve the 20% reduction on CO2 emissions the Municipality set to its territory, together with time frames and assigned responsibilities. INTELI worked closely the most relevant regional entities in order to define the action plan.
ENERGY EFFICIENCY IN THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY
[2011-2012] INTELI is promoting the energy efficiency in compressed air in the automotive industry.
Compressed air represents an important share of energy consumption by the industry.
INTELI is coordinating a project to promote energy efficiency in the use of compressed air in the automotive industry that implies energy audits and training.
