The energy system is obsolete, plundered and without a future

The Romanian energy system is on the eve of a crisis, estimates Jean Constantinescu, one of the mentors of the reform of the Romanian energy, according to the daily ‘Cotidianul.’ Representative of Romania at Eurelectric, nobody listens to him in Bucharest because the political interests of the cronies are dominant. Now he is the head of the National Romanian Institute for the study of the organization and use of the sources of energy. “We are in a systemic crisis and close to an energy crisis. The lack of a reform or, even more, the intentions of the politicians to deviate towards state-controlled and centralist formulas prompt us to anticipate the blockage,” he declared in an interview. “The decision makers do not understand that all the production groups must live through their own means, and brigandry does not match the market economy. I’ll give you an example, the entities from Iernut and Drobeta, which have high costs, sell energy at the hours when the demand is big and the prices are big in the market,” Constantinescu added.

Asked if a bi-cephalic organisation like PDL-PSD is sought, he answered “I didn’t say it! We can interpret also like that. Anyway, I believe that it would be a damaging and even risky adventure for Romania.”

“Look carefully at the cement market. There are three competitors and they have divided the production,” Jean Constantinescu stressed.
