Renewable energy's share in Romania to reach 34% by 2030

Alina Oprea
Romania assumed a share of approximately 30.7% of renewable energy sources for 2030 through the National Integrated Plan in the field of energy and climate change 2021-2030, but through a reanalysis, it will reach 34%, says Casian Niţulescu, Secretary of State in the Ministry of Energy. Through investments in energy efficiency, Romania can have numerous benefits such as a major decrease in energy consumption and a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.

"Through the integrated national plan in the field of energy and climate change, we assumed approximately 30.7% as sources of renewable energy, but through a reanalysis, we will reach 34%. The dimension of energy efficiency occupies an important role in the national plan. It not only ensures energy security but also a transition to cleaner, greener energy, an energy of the future. Europe undertook to become the first climate-neutral continent by 2050, and by 2030 we undertook to reduce gas emissions by 55%", said Casian Niţulescu, during a conference.

He emphasized that, through investments in energy efficiency, Romania can have numerous benefits such as a major decrease in energy consumption, a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, and, last but not least, an improvement in the environment and an increase in the quality of life.

At the same time, the state secretary mentioned that through an energy audit, vulnerable consumption areas can be identified, and through energy management, better coordination of companies can be ensured. On the other hand, by investing in equipment with low energy consumption, companies' profitability can be increased, and by ensuring the production of electricity from renewable sources, bills can be reduced, thus ensuring companies' profitability.

Regarding energy efficiency in buildings, Casian Niţulescu stated that this is "a rather complex activity" that the Ministry of Development deals with.

"Through investments in energy efficiency in buildings, maximum profitability can be ensured - that is, investments in thermal insulation, in the thermal insulation of the building, walls, floors, roofs", he stated, also referring to the efficient use of lighting, as well as to investments in the supply of electricity from renewable sources.
