Abstract
Nestling in the plains of Suriyawewa in the dry zone of southeast Sri Lanka, is the village of Weniwelara - the site of the win-generated power project begun by the Energy Forum. Energy Forum is an independent body (originally part of IT-Sri Lanka) which has stimulated various alternative energy options in Sri Lanka such as micro-hydro, solar, biogas, and wind energy. With technical support from IT-Sri Lanka, and financed jointly by the UK Department for International Development and the Civil Society Department of the European Community, this project has made history for two reasons. It is the first wind energy project in the country and its ownership and maintenance is in the hands of the recipient community.
