The Romanian Government will approve in the last meeting of this month both Romania’s Energy Strategy and the National Integrated Energy-Climate Change Plan (PNIESC), Virgil Popescu, Minister of Energy, announced on Wednesday.
“In the last meeting of this month, we will approve in the Government the draft law on energy strategy, which we will send to the Parliament. Regarding the National Integrated Plan for Energy and Climate Change, it will be approved by Government decision at the end of this month. From that moment on, we will have new renewable targets,” the minister said, according to Agerpres.
According to him, PNIESC and the renewable energy targets that Romania has proposed could be revised in 2023, depending on the evolution of the market and investments.
Romania has assumed the achievement of a RES target of 30.7% of total energy in 2030, compared to the level of 24% set as a target for 2020 and reached since 2017.
