Study finds Serbian and German wind resources similar
1 February 2009
Serbia's wind resources compare with those of Germany, according to the Belgrade-based Institute for Multidisciplinary Studies. A study by the institute found that at a height of 100 metres the average annual amount of available wind energy ranges from 900 kWh per square metre of rotor swept area in south-west Serbia and 2700 kWh a square metre in the eastern part of the country. The Zajecar area in the east and Vlasina Lake further south can together produce 2400 TWh a year, while the wind resource around Belgrade and the town of Vrsac are similar to that of Berlin, according to the institute. The study has sparked interest among potential foreign investors, says the organisation's Miroslav Nikcevic.
