Nine wind turbines operating in Slovakia on three wind farms produce as little as five megawatts (MW), the SITA newswire wrote.

The wind farms are located in Cerová, Ostrý Vrch and Skalité.

In comparison, the Czech Republic’s new wind power generation capacities increased output by 63 MW, raising the country’s total to 117 MW.

Bulgaria is producing 34 MW and Poland increased its installed capacity of wind turbines by 60 percent, Pavel Machava from the Wind Energy Association (ZVES) informed SITA.

Machava said Slovakia has the resources for about 600 MW of wind power in the next five to six years, which would provide the country with 1.3 terrawatthours of eco-friendly electric energy.

Wind energy has experienced a tremendous amount of interest around the globe in the past few years. Total installed capacity of wind turbines grew at a record pace to exceed 100,000 MW of output at the beginning of this year. If it grows at the same rate, it would be as much as 240,000 MW by 2012.
