Romania took measures to secure itself energetically, in the context of the hybrid war determined by Russia, but also came up with protection solutions for the European Union, stated the Minister of Energy, Virgil Popescu.
“In the context of the hybrid war determined by Russia, Romania took measures to secure itself energetically, but also came up with protection solutions for the European Union. In this sense, we signed an agreement with Georgia, Hungary and Azerbaijan for the construction of a submarine cable of energy transport from renewable sources, which will supply the EU. Furthermore, we are part of the project to expand the southern gas corridor, which leaves from Azerbaijan, to Central and South-Eastern Europe,” said Popescu, in a post on Facebook quoted by Agerpres.
In addition to the two essential measures, Romania wants to extract the existing gas from the perimeters that belong to it in the Black Sea, it is developing its civil nuclear capacity through the construction of reactors 3 and 4 at Cernavodă and through the commissioning of small modular reactors, he added.
“Also, through PNRR we have development projects to support investments in green hydrogen,” added the head of Energy.
