Abstract [en]

Wind power in Russia is lagging behind many other European countries due to low cost of conventional power along with meteorological and geographical restraints. The majority of wind farm in Russia tend to be much smaller capacity than their counterparts in countries such as Germany, the United States, India and Denmark. Wind turbines installed in Russia are often purchased second-hand from Germany or Denmark and have a much lower capacity. Some Russian companies produce their own wind turbines but they are mostly of a small capacity and are designed for personal use. Most of the stations in these regions are diesel power stations (DPS) with up to 25 MW and they require vast quantities of diesel, which needs to be transported from other regions. Government financial and legislative support is required to enable wind power development in Russia and a close collaboration with foreign wind power companies is needed to acquire manufacturing and projection experience.
