Windmills in Serbia
Published 06th December 2009 - 1 comments - 1621 views -
Windmills have been used for almost 1000 years. During the 19. Century they were used massively for starting of mills, sawmills and water pumps, especial in the Netherlands, Denmark and SAD.
Their basic characteristic is that they turn the energy of wind motion into energy of rotation so through a shaft they can provide electric current to certain some devices.
In Serbia there is little evidence of any serious studies relating to wind energy. One reason for this may be that there is an inadequate height regulation.
Furthermore, all parameters which would affect the possible exploitation of wind energy have not been measured.
Previous studies were based on meteorological measures of wind speed.
Despite the data, the Minister for energy has announced earlier this year that the construction of two windparks in south-eastern part of province Vojvodina, would be started up to end of year.
He also said that Serbia has the potential to produce 2,3 billion KW/h electricity from wind energy and that is 7% of current total production.
The Minister said that Serbia in the upcoming period would invest a lot of funds in the field of renewal sources of energy. He expects that Serbia will produce 12% of electricity from the sources in the next 5 or 6 years.
Although the Minister announced, the construction has not been started jet.
