The company’s latest whitepaper* states that while this increase will occur at an impressive Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 48%, Serbia will reach approximately 250 MW of onshore installed capacity by 2020: only half of its 500 MW capacity cap for wind energy by that year.

Elias continues: “As wind is the cheapest form of renewable energy, apart from mini hydro, Serbia is seeking to take advantage of this power source as it bids to become part of the European Union and achieve a target of 27% of its energy mix coming from renewable sources by 2020
