Wind energy has experienced in the last years a growth of installed capacity in Romania and according to the experts, by the end of this year over 7.5% of the electricity demand could be covered by wind energy. Today the installed power of all operating wind parks is 1000 MW. Compared to 2010 the percentage of growth was of 112.6% in 2011 and for 2012 it is expected to double the installed capacity. To support the development of this field, REECO, trade fair and conference organizer on renewable energy and energy efficiency all over Europe, comes back to the Palace Hall Bucharest, between the 21st – 23rd of November with the 5th edition of RENEXPO® SOUTH-EASTEUROPE.
According to Transelectrica, this year in August, the total MW of projects with the Technical Approve for Connection and with the concluded Connection Contract reached 22.458 MW. This statistic ranks Romania on the 2nd place in Europe, after Germany and before Spain. These projects are currently just being planned and ready to be started in the next years. 97% of the installed capacity until today is located in south-east of the country but this year a tendency to move on the northeast of the country is also shown.
Romania has attracted many investors in renewable energy, especially due to the support scheme approved by the European Union, according to which the wind energy producers receive 2 green certificates per MWh. The purpose of this support system is to attract by 2020, 5 billion euro in wind investments. Next years there will be built 10 wind parks in several regions of the country like Brila and Buzu county. The investment in these parks reach up to 1,35 billion euro.
