Romania will assume at the European Commission a renewable energy target of 30.5% for the year 2030, a rise from the 27.9% target previously estimated, sources with the Ministry of Economy and Energy have said on Tuesday.
“At this moment, we are working on the elaboration of a memorandum, which will be approved in the Government, after being endorsed by several ministries. After the approval in the Government, the National Integrated Climate Change-Energy Plan will be modified, which will be sent to the European Commission. The target we propose is 30.5%,” said sources quoted by Agerpres.
At the end of last year, Romania sent a draft of the Integrated National Energy-Climate Change Plan to Brussels, in which the national target proposed by Romania for the year 2030 for renewable energy was 27.9%.
On the other hand, in June 2019, the European Commission sent a reply to the Romanian authorities, indicating that this target is too small and Romania’s target should be of 34%. Romania must send a final plan back to Brussels by the end of this year.
