One of nature’s most omnipresent sources of sustaining life air is also one of nature’s most silent yet highly useful sources of energy for mankind. Wind is technically nothing more than moving air sometimes with considerable force from areas of high pressure to areas of low pressure and in this process it has the ability to become one of the biggest tools of satisfying environmentally sustainable energy consumption needs of industrialized economies. It is abundant, moderately easy to harvest and is a long term solution to many energy requirements. This natural resource though much under estimated at times has shown a promising future in many parts of the globe including Central and Eastern European areas.

Wind power is blowing well in the EU and in 2008. Three percent of all new capacity in the EU was from wind energy, exceeding all other technologies including gas, coal and nuclear power. The main driver is the EU-wide target that 20% of all energy should come from renewable sources by 2020. Like in the rest of Europe, this is driving growth in Eastern and Central Europe also.

Like its other EU regions, in 2008 the regions in Central and Eastern Europe joined READ MORE >
