Romania to add 400MW in wind this year amid planned incentive cuts

Around 400MW of fresh wind capacities will go online this year, despite the uncertainty regarding the reduction of the green certificate support scheme

Wind energy has been the main driver for the 50 percent drop in electricity prices.

Romania reached over 2,000MW of incentivized wind capacities by March. Under the current regulation, wind gets two certificates through to 2017 and one after. This scheme that runs for 15 years ensures the recovery of the investment in ten to twelve years.
