A general assessment of the wind energy potential from the eastern part of Romania was carried out in this work by taking into account onshore and offshore wind conditions. First, a perspective of the importance of the renewable resources into the Romanian electricity system was provided, from which was noticed that the wind production cover almost 15% from the demand (reported to 2017). From the analysis of the wind data significant differences were noticed between the onshore and offshore regions, the last one presenting more important wind resources, that significantly increase during the winter time (with almost 22%). According to the performance reported by an offshore wind turbine (rated at 3 MW), such generator will operate at full capacity in a maximum 9% from the time, if we consider a hub height of 119 m.
