Bosnia on the path to wind

, News

Bosnia and Herzegovina moved closer to becoming a wind energy producer with the awarding of a turbine supply contract to Siemens for the 50.6MW Mesihovina wind farm.
Bosnia and Herzegovina provides incentives for wind, although this not regulated nationally but at the level of the two entities making up the country – the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (Federation BiH) and Republika Srpska.

Technical estimates have placed Bosnia’s wind power potential as high as 2GW, although the amount that could be feasibility exploited given grid limitations and other restrictions may be about half that.

A member of the Energy Community, in April the country finally submitted a long-requested national renewable energy plan laying out a target for 330MW of wind capacity by 2020.

Currently about 40% of Bosnia’s power generation is from hydro and the rest from coal-fired plants.
