Energiaklub’s opinion on the new Hungarian wind energy regulations

No wind farms have been built in Hungary for the past 12 years. The new wind energy law was published for public consultation in late December 2023, and the NECP (National Energy and Climate Plan) has also set a target for wind energy development, although the planned expansion is not very ambitious and is not sufficient for a rapid and economic green energy transition in Hungary.

The draft amendment to the law regulating wind farms was published on December 15, 2023, nine months later than previously promised. The deadline for submitting comments was December 21, 2023, which does not meet the minimum 8 days required by law.

Energiaklub submitted an opinion to the Ministry for Energy and also summarised its comments in English in the file downloadable below.
