Romania’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Business Environment (MECMA) has posted its 2011-2035 energy strategy online for discussion.
The document is intended to open discussion about Romania’s energy policies for 2011-2035 by providing international context, Romania’s current energy policies, its main targets and trends as well as forecasts concerning the country’s energy sector and measures for meeting the priority targets, Romania’s Agerpres reported.
MECMA comments that updating Romania’s energy strategy, as required in the government’s 2009-2012 program, the first target of chapter 17’s “Energy and Mineral Resources” requires a deep analysis of the country’s current energy sector, as well developing potential solutions.
MECMA noted, “Both the economic crisis in the past years and the new law packages adopted in the European Union in the field of energy and climate changes have deeply modified the context and the prospects in which Romania's energy strategy for 2007-2020, which is currently in force, was drawn up. The new strategy must secure the correlation of energy resources, economic capacities, technologic and economic-financial trends, and energy efficiency, environmental protection and conformity with the EU energy policy.”
