Wind power is blowing well in the European Union. 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 recent years, the regions in Central and Eastern Europe have also joined in the wind power growth wagon wheel of the EU.

This research has identified the broad role being played by these areas in harnessing wind power and hence this report on Analyzing the Central and Eastern European Wind Power Industry 2016 provides a comprehensive encapsulated view of the wind power industry in these areas.

The report initiates with a complete theoretical ground building on wind power on its brief history as well as the harnessing mechanism for electricity through wind turbines and some of the markets.

As every energy solution cannot become a commercial success without some critical support factors this report also analyzes the Growth Drivers for wind power which support READ MORE >
