OeEB provides EUR 24 million for the construction of the 69 MW Kosava wind farm to sustainably improve the country’s energy supply.
The Serbian energy supply is to a large extent based on coal. Especially during winter months, power outages are frequent and energy needs to be imported in order to cover increased demand.
The aim is therefore to increase the share of renewable energy in the energy mix to improve the country's energy supply and at the same time reduce CO2 emissions.
The 69 MW Kosava wind farm co-financed by OeEB will be located near Zagajica, close to the Rumanian border, and will make an important contribution towards improving the country's energy supply. As Serbia's biggest wind power facility it is also expected to help promote the development of further renewable energy projects in the country.
