Wind farm The Spanish Wind Power Association (AEE) has said it is keen to develop renewable energy projects in Turkey.

Alberto Cena, technical director of the group, said there is big potential for wind energy in the south-east European nation.

However, he said the sector is developing very slowly.

As a result, AEE is "eager" to get Spanish companies into Turkey to work on projects such as new wind farms.

Speaking to the Anatolia news agency, Mr Cena said: "We see Turkey as a favourable market from which to reach out to neighbouring countries."

He noted that the cost of investing in wind power in Turkey is relatively low in comparison with other nations.

However, Mr Cena added that the Turkish government would need to revise laws relating to renewable energy before such projects could be implemented.

This, he said, is because existing legislation currently contains a number of ambiguities.

His comments come after REVE reported that the daily production of wind power in Spain reached a record level earlier this month - beating the previous record by three per cent.
