  • Belarus, a landlocked, generally flat country (the average elevation is 162 meters above sea level) without natural borders, occupies an area of 207,600 km2, or slightly smaller than the United Kingdom or the state of Kansas. Its neighbors are Russia to the east and northeast, Latvia to the north, Lithuania to the northwest, Poland to the west, and Ukraine to the south. Its extension from north to south is 560 km, from west to east is 650 km. The population of Belarus was 9.51 million and the current gross domestic product (GDP) was $59.6 billion as of 2018.

    Belarus wind power market value, which was USD XXX million in 2018, is expected to grow to USD XXX million in 2019, at a CAGR of XXX percent. Renewable energy sources (RES) account for less than XXX percent of the total fuel and energy consumption in Belarus in 2018. The figure is projected to reach XXX percent by 2019. As a net energy importer, the national energy policy of Belarus is focused on maintaining energy security and stability in the country and reducing energy import dependency through increased energy efficiency measures. A new “Concept of Energy Security” came into force on 1 January 2016 and defines the long-term view on the country’s energy sector development. The main priority of Belarus energy policy is to increase energy efficiency and to develop local sources of energy: 80 % of the energy consumption is currently imported.

    The potential of wind energy is estimated to equal 1.9 – 2.0 Mtoe per year. The technical potential of energy that could be generated by wind farms is estimated at 220 billion kWh. A survey has been done by the government resulted in 1,840 sites fit for placing wind-powered generators with the potential energy output of over 1,600 MW.

    Belarus is ranked among top 5 countries by attractiveness for wind energy investments among CIS countries by Renewable Market Watch in their yearly updated "Attractiveness index for wind energy investments in CIS countries in 2019". The country’s main strategy to meet the growing need of power is to reduce the energy dependency by increasing the energy efficiency, increased use of renewable resources, nuclear sources, and connecting to the European power infrastructure and power infrastructure of Commonwealth Independent States (CIS).

    Current cumulative installed wind power capacity in the country is XXX MW at the end of 2018 and number of fully permitted and ready to build projects will promptly increase in 2019 and next years. First wind power plants have been launched into commercial operation between 2012 and 2018, whilst pipeline of over 200 MW wind power projects are progressing in different stages of permitting process for grid connection by 2020. Feed-in tariff for wind energy has been updated in Belarus in May 2015 combined with 20 years PPA period is expected to pave the way for fast further growth of wind energy market in Belarus.
