* Ernst&Young and a Greek company will perform the quantitative modelling of the Romanian energy industry development by the year of 2030
The consortium consisting in Ernst&Young and the Greeks from E3 Modelling PC will perform the analysis and the quantitative modelling for the Energy Strategy, according to some sources in the field.
The Energy Ministry has received bids from two consortiums of companies within the tender for the procurement services of modeling and quantitative analysis of the data in order to elaborate the Romanian Energy Strategy 2016-2030, with the perspective of the year of 2050, a contract valued at RON 1.88 million (TVA included).
One of the two bids came from the consortium led by the Institute for Studies and Power Engineering (ISPE), in association with Deloitte Consultancy and Suciu Popa and the Associates law firm, having the National Research and Development Institute for Energy (ICEMENERG) as subcontractor. Despite our all efforts towards the ISPE representatives, we haven’t received any confirmation or refutation of the above.
The other bidder, which was besides designated to be the winner, is the association led by Ernst&Young Romania, whose partner is the Greek company E3 Modelling PC, which provides consultancy in energy/climate changes. The Greeks have been worked before with the officials from Bucharest, providing training services for Government’s employees related to developing, operating and using computerized econometric models, which include energy and climate factors.
If there will be no complaints, the winner will be officially designated next week.
According to the Energy Ministry, the consultant will elaborate and analyze three development scenarios of the Romanian energy sector in the perspective of the year 2030, in line with the energy and environmental obligations assumed by our country.
It’s difficult to understand why a sector where Romanian research, design and engineering have a long experience and capability is not “modelled” by Romanian specialists, but by companies who, professionally speaking, are not as good as the Romanian ones, including the ones above mentioned.
