Lificiu: Investors in the development of wind energy sector have to be supported

The Chairman of the National Regulatory Agency in the field of Energy (ANRE), Petru Lificiu, said on Friday, while at Iasi, that the Eastern and South–Eastern parts of Romania have a huge wind energy potential, but the investors willing to come here need to be supported and not having to cope with various bureaucratic obstacles, Mediafax informs.

ANRE Chairman said that there were many investors interested in producing wind energy, but many of them are not sufficiently supported.

“There is inertia among institutions, a real bureaucracy. An investor who applies to receive a license to produce wind energy has to cope with extremely complicated procedures. There are four rows of authorities that have to provide the approvals. It is about local authorities, then it is Transelectrica, where three approvals have to be obtained from, and then there is the approval from Ministry of Environment, and finally, the establishment authorization is received from ANRE. Yet, this is not all for the investor. He then has to go back to the local authorities, then, he needs to go back to Transelectrica and then he has to obtain the final environment approval,” ANRE Chairman stressed. Lificiu said that many investors did not know, so far, which were the obstacles, being taken from one institution to another. “This chain has to be shortened,” ANRE Chairman said. He added that the renewable energies represent chances for Romania since they can secure the country’s energy autonomy.
