Planed investment for electricity production from wind energy are over 1,5 bill euro but investors are complaining that despite the fact that new Energy Law is valid it still cant be fully implemented in this green area.

European countries are counting on wind energy in great scale as nuclear power plants in many countries will be closed.
Serbia posses large potentials for wind electricity generation, suitable positions of areas across the country, competitive conditions and incentive measures, its is quite logical that competition is increasing in this market area and that actors and companies are seeking to influence the next incentive period which will be granted by the state.
