There's no place for wind power in Hungary

The Hungarian government has a clear energy strategy, according to which wind power is not optimal, while solar energy is far more advantageous

The Hungarian government has said that it has no plans to develop wind energy in Hungary.

Nándor Csepreghy, parliamentary state secretary, believes there is no place for wind power in the country’s energy mix.

Commenting on amendments to legislation that lawmakers will discuss on Monday, Csepreghy said the government wants to boost the share of renewable energy sources in the mix, but local conditions make wind energy a poor choice, MTI reports.

In Hungary, the wind blows mostly in the afternoon and the evening, at times when demand for energy is low, he explained.

Solar or geothermal energy offer the country a much greater advantage, he added.

The government has a “clear energy strategy, according to which wind power is not optimal, while solar energy is far more advantageous," Csepreghy concluded.
