The City Hall of Sector 1 has initiated several projects for the production of energy from renewable sources, energy efficiency and electromobility in recent years, and this year it will be able to start some of them. The others are blocked for political reasons. “The clock is ticking, we are in a unique energy transition perhaps in history and it is very important that certain topics are not politicized”, said Tudor Roșca, City Manager of the Sector 1 City Hall, Bucharest, at the “Smart Cities” conference, organized by Energynomics.
One of the most advanced projects of the Sector 1 City Hall is the electromobility project, which involves the installation of 700 “standard” recharging points for electric cars. The project has been approved and submitted to the Environmental Fund Administration, and this year the installation of some of the stations could begin. “We should see the first hubs installed this year,” continued Roșca.
The City Hall of Sector 1 proposed in 2021 to become energy independent, installing 24 MWp in solar power plants on ten schools, but the project was not approved by the local councilors.
Another initiative of the City Hall of Sector 1 aims to create a standardized project for the supply of thermal energy. The project involves the creation of an alternative system that works in parallel with Termoenergetica combined with the local production of photovoltaic energy and heat pumps. The initiative would generate savings of 25 million lei in heating costs at the level of owners’ associations.

This initiative is also blocked at the level of the Local Council of Sector 1, but Tudor Roșca declared himself confident that in 2023 it could be applied in several buildings in Sector 1.
