Dobrogea delivers the largest wind park- based energy in Central and Eastern Europe

Dobrogea became the largest wind park in Central and Eastern Europe, with hundreds of 2.5 MW wind turbines being spread all over the Constanta County, in Cogealac, Fantele, Pestera, Independenta, Chirnogeni, Silistea, Targusor and Crucea localities and surrounding areas, according to data quoted by national newswire Agerpres.

The Dobrogea strong winds and the high price of electricity continue to attract investments in wind parks here, despite the problem existing of the missing infrastructure for transporting the energy produced. In this context, experts in the field drew attention that investments in wind parks should be stopped in the Dobrogea areas.

One of the largest operational wind parks in the Constanta County is the one located in the Cogeleac-Fantanele area, with 240 wind turbines and a total installed capacity of 600 MW, in the context in which one single reactor of the Cernavoda Nuclear Power Plant generates a power of 700 MW.

Another 30-turbine park, and with 270 other wind turbines pending for construction approval, can be found at Pestera, according to the mayor of this commune, Valentin Vrabie.

Investors in the wind parks in Dobrogea are mostly companies running on foreign capital: Czech companies, Spanish, Portuguese, German, and French and from other European countries.

Transelectrica issued 10.1 million green certificates for the energy producers in 2013, according to data available on the OPCOM, the electricity market operator. The renewable energy production hit a record-level in end-2013, with a total capacity of the existing projects in the system of 4,255 MW, by 82 per cent more than in end-2012, according to the data made available by the National Regulatory Authority in the Field of Energy (ANRE).

Producers of renewable energy receive subsidies in the form of green certificates billed on all consumers, households included, and which are entered separately in the monthly electricity bill.

Romania undertook to have by 2020 a share of 24 percent of its final gross energy consumption covered from renewable sources, but the National Energy Regulatory Authority (ANRE) announced that Romania had already attained this target on January 1, 2014.
