The construction works’ volume has risen in the first ten months both as gross series and as series adjusted to the number of workdays and seasonality by 2.1 per cent and 3.4 per cent respectively, year-on-year, the National Statistics Institute (INS) data shows. Ordered by structure, the volume of new construction works grew by 10.7 per cent as gross series. Drops were registered in the case of capital repairs (13.5 per cent) and current repairs and maintenance works (11.8 per cent). Construction works dropped by 12.2 per cent in the case of residential buildings and 3.3 per cent in the case of non-residential buildings. The volume of construction works grew by 8.6 per cent in the case of engineering constructions. In October, the volume of construction works grew month-on-month by 5.5 per cent as gross series and by 0.7 per cent as adjusted series.

Electricity resources totalled 49.825 billion KWh, down by 1.522 billion KWh (3 per cent), a drop mainly caused by a 1.752 billion KWh (3.5 per cent) fall in production. Electricity production in thermal power plants grew by 2.2 per cent to 27.036 bln KWh, electricity production in hydropower plants dropped by 23.2 per cent to 10.52 bln KWh and the electricity production of the Cernavoda nuclear power plant dropped by 2.4 per cent to 9.486 bln KWh. During the aforementioned period the production of electricity in wind farms grew from 1.076 bln KWh to 2.005 bln KWh. The end consumption of electricity grew by 0.2 per cent to 43.858 bln KWh compared to the same period last year. Consumption of electricity for public lighting grew by 6 per cent, while household consumption of electricity grew by 1.1 per cent.
