Wind energy in Romania: CEZ to complete 600 MW wind farm

Wind farms accounted for 2.5% of the energy generated in Romania in January-April, out of which 1.2%, or nearly half of the wind energy, was generated by CEZ, CEZ Trade’s general manager, Ion Lungu, said.

CEZ Romania thus generated 303GWh and received some 0.6mn tradable green certificates. At current price of EUR 53 per TGC, this means slightly over EUR 30mn – which is enough to develop a wind farm with an installed capacity of 18MW.

The revenues generated by the sale of electricity at a market price of EUR 50 per MW should finance another 9MW of wind power capacity. The installed of wind farms in Romania is expected to reach 2,100MW by the end of the year, up from some 1,000MW at the end of last year.
