Renewable energy important in future energy strategy

The energy strategy of Romania, currently under construction, will accommodate relevant transformations occurring worldwide, with a special place to be allocated to energy produced from renewable sources, with growing weight in the national consumption, Gabriel Dumitrascu, Director with the Energy Department, states, according to Mediafax.
The energy official points out that we currently have over 4,100 MW installed at renewable energy production facilities with a growing trend, even if not as fast as so far.
Green energy had a weight of 7 per cent in the overall consumption in 2012, going up to 10 per cent last year. The intention is to reach 20 per cent by 2020. ‘We are close to that target’, Dumitrascu said.  The strategy will be implemented from 2014 until 2035 and the document is scheduled to be ready at the beginning of October.
Renewable energy receives state aid through the so-called ‘green certificates’. Green energy producers receive such certificates free of charge, which they sell on to energy suppliers who then roll over the cost into end user bills.
