Romania’s music festival Neversea, held each year on the Black Sea coast, could become the world's first green energy-powered festival thanks to the wind farms operated nearby. According to the organizers, in 2020 the Neversea Festival aims to become the first ever music festival in the world supplied almost entirely with green energy from a wind source from the Fântânele-Cogealac-Grădina Wind Farm located in Constanţa County. The festival organizers have already signed a partnership with an energy company. Since the process of implementing the necessary infrastructure will take time, it will begin this year and will be completed for the 2020 edition, when almost the entire event will be supplied with energy from the wind farm.

For the 2019 iteration of Neversea, the energy company will set up a 100% green area that will be fully powered by renewable energy. Measures will be taken to prevent, reduce and offset any adverse effects on the environment: selective waste collection and recycling, replacement of cutlery and plastic dishes with glass or recyclable cartons, removal of plastic strains and a wide array of reusable decoration.
