Topolog and Casimcea, likely wind energy stars in 2011

Valea Dacilor, Topolog, Casimcea, D?ieni or Valea Nucarilor are just a few of Dobrogea communes standing a chance to become real stars this year as international players are coming up with over 2bn euros to build around 450 windmills. Whereas last year the hottest spot in Romania for wind farm investments was Fântânele commune, in 2011 several regions of Moldova are also emerging besides the Dobrogea villages.

Transelectrica data show investments of around 760m euros were operated in 2010 to install the 424 MW in wind farms, a significant sum given the economic background of the past two years.

Even so, according to the national power transmission company, 2011 will bring a spectacular leap in investments, as a capacity of around 1,112 MW, the equivalent of investments of above 2bn euros, is expected to be connected to the network.

Practically, data show that while around 170 wind turbines had been installed at the end of 2010, a network of almost 450 wind mills should be connected by late 2011.
