Renewable energy sources are becoming more and more popular around the world and, through the development of the wind energy sector, Romania has the chance to generate green electricity and with low emissions, and a greater energy security, and thus meet the requirements of the EU with regard to the production of energy from renewable sources. This is a great challenge, not only for developers and investors, but also for State administration and the conventional energy industry. All stakeholders appear to understand the extent and now, although the future of the energy system is the incipient phase, we face a historic chance to create sustainable foundations for the development of modern energy industry and environmental damage over the long term. Wind power and other renewable energy sources are not able to completely replace existing power plants, but it can become an important element of the energy system.
