Wind energy 'growing fast' in Romania

Renewable energy is making waves in more and more countries, with Romania the latest cited to be boosting its power production from sustainable sources.

According to a report in the Diplomat, the country could be producing as much as 600MW of renewable energy from wind turbines by the end of the year.

This would be a marked increase on the amount of energy from renewable sources that was created in Romania last year, when only 14.1MW of power was generated.

Jacopo Moccia, regional wind energy network European Wind Energy Association's regulatory affairs advisor, said: "Romania is the fastest growing market for wind energy in this region and has the largest potential."

Energy groups in the country have claimed that by the end of 2013, Romania could be generating as much as 1,800MW of renewable energy from wind turbines.

Colin Stuart of SciDev.net, writing for the Guardian, recently suggested that solar power could be used to meet the renewable energy needs of developing countries.
