Wind Power Romania

Start Date:17 Jan 12 End Date:18 Jan 12

The 2011 event was a sell-out success and, as the Romanian wind industry works towards 1,278 GW by the end of 2011, Wind Power Romania 2012 is ideally placed to allow you to assess 2011 growth and identify opportunities for 2012 and beyond.

With 4 GW of wind targeted by 2020, covering 70–80% of the Romanian renewable energy production target, the Romanian wind market has massive potential as a leading European market for wind. The Ministry of Economy expects onshore installations to grow to 1.8 GW by the end of 2011, and to 3.2 GW by 2015.

Based on recent growth in Romanian wind – 2010 saw 564 MW worth of installations come online – and a favourable legislative framework, the 4 GW 2020 target looks achievable.

Romania already hosts CEZ group's Fântânele-Cogealac wind farm, Europe's largest onshore wind park with 300 MW currently installed and has attracted major European utilities and developers such as Iberdrola, EDP and Enel, all of whom, along with CEZ, spoke at the 2011 event.

New announcements – such as the 700 MW farm Verbund plans in Topolog, Tulcea County – show that will be as exciting for the Romanian wind industry as 2010 was.

Transelectrica, the Romanian grid, has received 22,800 MW worth of applications for wind farms, but current capacity for wind sits at 2,660 MW, meaning that many companies may miss out unless they get the crucial components of their projects right in the first instance. That means:

• Navigating local siting and permitting issues
• Understanding how the Green Certificate scheme will add revenue to a project until 2017 and beyond
• Securing finance to get the project off the ground
• Selecting the right equipment and personnel for the project
• And, of course, getting connected to the grid!

Wind Power Romania 2012 will cover these topics and more. Wind Power Romania will be held in Bucharest. For further details please send a message to Katie.
