Montenegro’s renewables share of power generation tops 60%

Montenegro has two operational wind farms – Krnovo and Možura. The construction of the Gvozd wind farm is expected to begin in 2020.

In the last two years, Montenegro produced more than 60% of electricity from renewable energy sources, which is the result of a good investment environment and the inherited production infrastructure, Montenegro’s Economy Minister in charge of energy, Dragica Sekulić, said recently in an interview with Balkan Green Energy News.

The main sources of renewable power generation in the past period were the Piva and Perućica hydropower plants (HPPs), which were built in the 1960s and the 1970s, while as of this year, wind energy accounts for around 10% of power generation, Sekulić said.
