Poklečani Wind Farm

Poklečani Wind Farm

Project Description

More than half of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s electricity generation capacity is made up of hydropower, while the remainder comes from lignite power plants (47.6% of the total installed generation capacity) and wind farms.

This investment project will develop a 132 MW wind farm in the West Herzegovina Canton, contributing to the country’s renewable energy goals and reducing reliance on coal. The wind farm is expected to produce 436 GWh/year of electricity, equivalent to the energy demand of 72,700 households, and displace 446,900 tonnes of CO2 annually.

The EU has provided technical assistance for project preparation and co-funds the investments under Flagship 4 - Renewable energy - of the Economic and Investment Plan for the Western Balkans through the WBIF.
