According to the Romanian Ministry of Economy, according to the government’s “Energy Strategy 2020-2030 (Draft)”, Romania plans to invest more than 22.6 billion euros in its energy sector in the next ten years.
According to a plan announced by the Ministry of Economic Affairs on Wednesday for public discussion, Romania’s goal is to meet 30.7% of its renewable energy demand by 2030, compared to 24.4% currently.
In the next ten years, Romania intends to increase its installed energy production capacity by 35%, including new wind power capacity of 2302 MW and new solar power capacity of 3692 MW, thereby ensuring higher energy independence Sex.
The strategic blueprint shows that higher energy production capacity will help Romania reduce its energy imports from 20.8% of estimated consumption in 2020 to 17.8% in 2030, reaching one of the EU’s lowest levels of dependence on energy imports.
Regarding natural gas, Romania will focus on the development of the national natural gas transmission system on the Bulgaria-Romania-Hungary-Austria (BRUA) corridor and the Romanian Southern Natural Gas Corridor. Romania plans to replace several coal-fired units with combined cycle units powered by natural gas and units based on renewable energy by 2030.
The strategy also envisages the construction of two other reactors at the Cerna Voda nuclear power plant operated by the Nuclear Power Company. The plan shows that at present, the electricity generated through nuclear fission covers approximately 18% of the country’s electricity production through the two existing units in Cerna Voda. By 2035, this share will increase by adding two reactors. To 28%.
