Dedicated to electricity suppliers for more than 13 years, AFEER has decided to expand its activity and come to support natural gas suppliers, to be the common “voice” of companies that supply electricity and natural gas, in conditions safety and reliability, for millions of consumers.
The General Assembly of AFEER members recently approved the amendment of the Statute of the Association. The new approved name is the Association of Energy Suppliers of Romania (AFER).
“It is really an important step for the development of our association. We set out to expand and establish ourselves as a strong, competent and unitary voice of the industry we represent. We invite natural gas suppliers/ traders to join the association, to join fellow electricity suppliers/ traders. In the new context, we opted for a new name – the Association of Energy Suppliers of Romania, to represent, both, the interests of suppliers/ traders of electricity and natural gas. Our commitment is to develop a healthy energy market, a transparent business environment and ensure accurate consumer information. We will continue the Campaign, initiated in 2015, for a correct information of the consumers, especially of the domestic ones, for the protection of their interests,” said Ion Lungu, the president of the Association of Energy Suppliers of Romania.
“There follows a transitional period, of organizing the Association, respectively attracting new members among the natural gas suppliers/ traders. At the same time, in addition to energy suppliers, they can be members of the Association of Energy Suppliers of Romania and holders of aggregation licenses. Reputable law or consulting companies, specialized in services dedicated to the energy sector, can register as observer members, and prominent personalities in the field can have the quality of honorary members,” added Lungu.
By the end of next year, the management of the association will be provided by a president and 2 vice-presidents and a responsible for the development of each new activity will be elected from among the members of the Board of Directors.
AFEER currently has 36 members, with a market share of around 90% of final electricity consumption.
