Industry Profile
The article presents data and analyses on the renewable energy sources (RES), particularly wind and solar resources, in Southeastern Europe (SEE). It mentions that there were no operational wind energy power plants in Albania by the end of 2010 but the country has the potential to produce electricity through wind farms. It also notes that the wind energy that is usable in Bosnia and Herzegovina is 900 Megawatts (MW) although experts estimated that its total potential is 2,000 MW.
