Romania plans tripling of solar capacity to 4.25 gigawatts by 2030

Balkan Green Energy News:

Solar photovoltaic capacity in Romania is projected to triple during 2021-2030, from 1.39 GW in 2020 to 4.25 GW in 2030, according to a report titled Romania Power Market Outlook to 2030, Update 2021 – Market Trends, Regulations, and Competitive Landscape.

The Romanian government is expected to establish a coal commission and phase out coal power plants by 2032 while several oil-fired plants are also expected to be decommissioned by 2030. These moves would push the country towards greater use of gas-fired power plants, according to the report, produced by analyst company GlobalData.

Rohit Ravetkar, Power Analyst at GlobalData, said Romania has been proactively working towards the development of the renewable sector.

Two major reasons for this proactive approach are the phaseout of coal power plants in the country and to meet the energy and emission targets under the National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP).
