Wind power is a fledgling source of renewable energy in Serbia. In 2020, the wind power provided 963 GWh (2.83%) of the total electricity generated in Serbia, up from 48 GWh (0.15%) in 2017.[1][2]

Plants edit

The first wind farm was opened in 2011 and is located in Leskova, Tutin; it has installed capacity of 600 KW.[3] In 2015, wind farm near Kula was opened and has installed capacity of 9.9 MW; it was constructed by MK Fintel Wind.[4] La Pikolina (6.6 MW) wind farm near Vršac was opened in 2016.[5]

Malibunar (8 MW) went online in 2017.[6] Alibunar (42 MW) went online in 2018.[7]

In 2019 three wind farms went online: Košava near Vršac (69 MW),[8] Čibuk 1 near Kovin (158 MW)[9] and Kovačica (104 MW).[10]
