Former Minister for Energy Constantin Nita, currently Minister of Economy, expressed his intention to hire foreign consultants to develop the national energy strategy. In November 2013, he announced that the department received 20 bids from consultants, and those that were to be selected would have had six months to develop. The national energy strategy was to be completed in 2013, but it was postponed due to lack of funds, according to Niță.
