The wind farms will be built in each region of the country, including five
large projects planned for the Southern Federal District, the reports claim.
Among suppliers of wind turbines to the European market, GE is known to be particularly hopeful about the untapped Russian wind market.
Among the projects said to have been approved are the 1GW Volgograd Lower Volga and the 100MW
Astrakhan wind farms.
Two projects, known as Kolsky and Lodeyny, will be built in the Murmansk
region and will have a capacity of 500MW and 300MW respectively, the reports
A further two are planned for the Kalmykia Republic of Russia, which
will have a capacity of 150MW and 300MW and will be launched by 2025.
Russia last May approved an incentive programme to kick-start renewable
development in the country, targeting almost 6GW of new capacity by 2020,
including its first solar parks.
