Sensitive to Germany’s new energy policy, Romania’s Energy Minister Andrei Gerea emphasized at a meeting with the representatives of two German parliamentary groups that Romania has to ensure a competitive energy mix that would include electricity produced from renewable sources as well as nuclear energy.
According to a communiqué, the delegation of environment and agricultural policy spokespersons from the parliamentary groups of the Christian Democratic Union of Germany (CDU) and the Christian Social Union of Bavaria (CSU) have discussed with Romanian Energy Ministry representatives about the technological state of Romania’s energy production capabilities, about the number of power groups in operation and about the lifespan of the equipment.
The more than 20 German MPs and advisors that were part of the delegation showed interest in issues such as the national energy mix and the future directions of energy sector development, the goals sought in the nuclear energy domain and in the renewable energy sector.
“Our main preoccupation is ensuring energy security in this region of Europe. We want Romania to ensure a competitive energy mix that would include electricity produced from renewable sources, but also nuclear energy,” Minister Andrei Gerea stated at the meeting.
The event, part of the dialogue initiated by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation, sought to promote political cooperation and to consolidate intra-European relations.
