Wind Potential in Bulgaria

Studies show that due to its geographical location Bulgaria is with a favorable wind potential. The fully marine eastern border of the country determines the invasion of the sea breeze up to 40 km inland. On the other hand, the western part includes many hilly and mountainous terrains in which the total wind resource is greater than those in the flat eastern part.
