Among renewable energy resources, wind energy utilisation increased most intensely during the last decade. The sudden and widespread wind technological developments raised the question of the effectiveness of wind energy utilisation in moderate wind regions, such as Hungary. In order to support the European Union (EU) and national governmental efforts and to facilitate initiatives on renewable energy consumption, a research started on estimating and mapping the potential wind resources of the country.
