Renewable energy capacity to rise by 2020

The National Energy Regulatory Authority (ANRE) estimates that, by 2020, Romania will boast a total 4,800 MW- renewable energy capacity, in which the largest portion will be claimed by wind power (70 pc), and the rest by hydropower, biomass and solar power. “The effect of the aid scheme on the final price of energy will range between EUR 2 and 33/MWh. This is an estimate which may fall short of reality,” Zoltan Nagy-Bege, general director of the Energy Efficiency Regulatory Department within ANRE, stated, yesterday, in a specialized conference, quoted by Agerpres. According to the latter, by July 2011, Romania has to draft a new National Energy Efficiency Action Plan, which will have to be presented in Brussels. As a matter of fact, statistics show that Romania boasts the highest wind power potential in South-Eastern Europe, especially in Dobrogea, in Constanta and Tulcea areas.
