BUCHAREST – An unambitious green energy plan

Romania has revised its National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP)for the 2021-2030 period following the EU Commission’s assessment. Yet, it still envisages a very low share of renewables in the country’s total energy mix.

In the initial plan, Romania forecast the share of renewable power in the country’s gross final consumption will reach 27.9% in 2030, compared to the current 24%.

However, the European Commission considers this target to be significantly below the 34% resulted from its calculations and asked Bucharest authorities to set a more ambitious objective.

In the new plan, Romania’ economy ministry foresees a renewable energy share of 30.7% of the country’s total energy mix

However, to reach this target, Romania needs to develop new green power generating facilities with a total power of 6.9 GW compared to the capacity installed in 2015. (EURACTIV.ro)
