The World Wind Energy Association has published today a new report about the status of wind power in Russia and all CIS countries. The CIS countries are representing a world region with huge wind potentials, but where so far wind energy plays only a marginal role: The total wind installations have only reached 178 MW, a very small share of the global wind capacity of 254’000 MW (as of June 2012).

The CIS Report highlights the huge economic and social potentials and provides a comprehensive overview of the situation in the CIS countries. It aims at contributing to kick-start the deployment of wind technology in the region by providing information and by raising awareness amongst decision-makers from within and outside the region, amongst governments, industry as well as academia.

The Commonwealth of Independent States: An Overview
