Bucharest needs to enforce European regulations in energy sector

The Association of Companies for Energy Utilities (ACUE) considersRomania should revert, urgently, to proper practices as regards energy marketregulations, to be enforced, independently, by the National Energy RegulatoryAuthority (ANRE), according to a release by the institution remitted to “NineO’Clock”. To this purpose, the members of the association are eager to collaboratewith the state institutions to transpose, into the national legislation, theEuropean directives regarding the schemes for the regulation of energy pricespaid by low-end consumers. The European Commission recently warnedRomania that, unless the authorities enforce, in two months’ time, their commitmentsregarding the regulation of energy prices, the case may be deferred tothe European Union’s Court of Justice. ACUE members have repeatedly accusedthe Romanian authorities of procrastination in the application of Europeandirectives for the energy sector, which they committed to as early as 2007.Furthermore, ANRE fails to apply even the regulations currently in force, thusleading to losses of hundreds of million euros for the operators on the market.
