Energy Ministry works on Energy Strategy

Radu Dudau, advisor to the Energy Minister and coordinator of the drafting of the “Romanian Energy Strategy 2016-2030, with outlook for 2050,” emphasised at a special conference yesterday that work is being done on the drafting of the document, in line with the Government’s commitment.

According to him, the team that is working on the strategy has so far drafted two documents that concern the system’s current situation and Romania’s obligations at European level, Agerpres informs.

“A new stage is starting this week: the qualitative analysis of the energy sector. From March 9 to April 15, we will have five distinct working sessions: electricity, oil and gas, energy efficiency, cogeneration, energy governance and security and energy diplomacy. Around 200 top-level experts from the Romanian energy sector, Government, Parliament, world of academia, companies, regulatory agencies and other ministries will be involved,” Dudau pointed out.

According to him, sectoral reports will result, based on which an integrated report will be drafted and launched for public consultation around April 25.

“In fact, this document will present our vision on the development of the energy sector, what are the vulnerable points and the solutions, how we will attain our objectives,” the Energy Minister’s advisor said.

He pointed out that quantitative data modelling would follow, a process carried out, with the help of an international consultant, on the basis of various scenarios, starting from a basic scenario and going all the way through ambitious targets.

He also emphasised that vulnerable consumers and measures to protect them will hold an important place in the strategy.
