An obscure organization with interests to promote the affairs of some foreign groups in Romanian energy comes out again with proposals for the scandal on the energy market.
The PATRES has criticized the Integrated National Plan for Energy and Climate Change (PNIESC), where the Energy Ministry proposes a 27.9% share of renewable energy in 2030, stating that the target should be to be 35%.
“Why does renewable energy not be a priority for Romania, as it is for all EU countries?” asks rhetorically the representatives of PATRES.
Yes, it is, we answer, if the Ministry of Energy does not want to respond to this challenge.
Romania is one of the countries that has achieved its EU renewable energy target by 2020. The share of renewable energy exceeds 24% of final energy consumption. Countries such as the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, France, Hungary, Poland have not encouraged investments in wind or solar energy in order not to unbalance their energy system.
Poland gets electricity especially in coal-fired power plants (80% of total consumption), and by 2030, renewable energy sources should account for 21% of the country’s energy mix, according to Warsaw officials.
In Romania, the state has promoted support for renewable energy that has led to higher energy prices and significant costs for end consumers.
At the same time, investments in nuclear and thermal energy capacities have been frozen or neglected.
Also, over the past two decades, Romania has not completed any medium and high power hydraulic power stations. We have to mention that in the 24 percent renewable energy only capacities in the wind, solar and biomass sectors are included. Hydraulic energy already has a share of almost 25%.
Investments subsidized by the final consumer in renewable energy must be permanently eliminated. Whoever wants to invest must also take risks.
Currently risks are only for the national energy system. In the days and hours when the wind does not blow, Romania imports enormous amounts of electricity. Including in peak hours. When writing these lines, the import of electric power is almost 1500 MW.
What is PATRES’s opinion about this situation?
How PATRES explains that although in Romania the renewable energy capacities are 4500-5000 MW, the Romanian industrial companies are not involved. Foreign investors bring all the equipment from outside. We, the Romans, have to pay!
Not acceptable!
