Renewable Energy Market in Romania

Călin VAC, Sonia SÂNĂ, Felix ARION


Romania should encourage investment in alternative energy sources, that by 2012,
compared to the national gross electricity consumption, the share of electricity produced from
renewable energy, should reach 33%, equivalent to a total value of 21.4 TWh. One solution to promote
renewable energy use that could be developed in Romania, would be to correlate investments in

example, in Mangalia, several operators have built solar panels that provide, at least in summer, most
of the necessary hot water.
