BELGRADE - Serbia has a very significant potential in terms of renewable energy sources, which is an excellent foundation for energy stability in the future, says MK Fintel Wind Executive Director Tiziano Giovannetti.

"Serbia's overall renewable energy sources are approximately worth an annual 4.3 mln t of oil equivalent, which is 50,000 GWh at annual level," Giovannetti has told Tanjug.

Electricity generation from wind power has been Europe's fastest-growing renewable energy source in recent years, and Serbia has higher-than-average resources in this regard when compared to other countries in continental Europe, he said.

"The total available annual wind power quantity across Serbia is estimated at 2.3 bln KWh of electricity," he said, adding that the highest wind power values had been registered in the kosava region and in some mountainous regions but that there were also other, hidden wind oases in Serbia.
