The Romanian Government discussed on Monday, how can it best use the EUR 16 bln that the country can get from the European Union by 2030 for upgrading its power sector with a particular focus on renewable projects, according to Romania-Insider. 

“Romania should focus on developing its factories to produce parts and equipment used in renewable energy projects,” Prime Minister Nicolae Ciuca argued, daily Adevarul reported.

Ciuca explained that this approach will generate both economic benefits, through sustainable development of production capacities in the energy sector, as well as new jobs, in the technological fields of the future.

Under the Integrated National Plan in the field of Energy and Climate Change (PNIESC) for the period 2021-2030, Romania must have net installed capacities of 5.1 GWh of solar and 5.3 GWh of wind by 2030.
 
In total, Romania thus should install additional capacities of 6.9 GW from renewable sources in the period 2021-2030.
