TPA Horwath Romania and Schönherr have, for the fourth consecutive time, published a study on ’Wind power and other renewable energy sources in Romania’, Austrian Energy Agency’s EnerCEE portal said.

The report highlights that the total installed wind power capacity in Romania increased by 36.5 percent in 2013. Romania currently ranks 5th in Europe regarding investments into renewable energy. While Germany and the UK are market leaders in this segment, Romania, Portugal, Poland and Sweden have confirmed their status as emerging markets due to their important contributions over the course of 2013.

Electricity generated by wind covered 8 percent of total Romanian power consumption in 2013. This figure is likely to have risen to 9 percent by the end of 2014 and one more percentage point increase is expected this year, as all wind farms that have been applied for in 2014 are expected to come into operation.

The current issue includes the latest figures and indicators for evaluating the wind energy market as well as all necessary factors for the evaluation of other renewable energy sources such as solar, hydropower, biomass and geothermal.
