ENERGYNOMICS MAGAZINE ONLINE
184 pages of interviews, analysis and opinions, fully bilingual are now available for all interested in the present situation of the Romanian energy industry. The printed edition will also be available in the next few days and we will make sure it will reach, as it has been doing since December 2013, professionals in the energy industry in Romania, the managers of the most active companies and officials from regulatory authorities with responsibilities in the energy sector.
For them, we address topical issues, from the general economic context, to European, national and company strategies, from this year’s forecasts, to the previous year’s conclusions in terms of dividends paid to shareholders, from energy efficiency efforts in industry and local public authorities, from the (unexpected) growing role of the oil and gas segment, to the effervescence of projects and investments in the renewable segment, especially at the level of prosumers.
The year 2022 was the year of energy investments in Romania, 2023 continues to be a year of massive investments and the effects of these investments will be seen soon, says Virgil Popescu, Minister of Energy, in an exclusive interview with Energynomics. At the same time, the Ministry of Energy has concluded solid, long-term strategic partnerships to ensure the country’s energy security, Virgil Popescu told us. “We have secured the integrated nuclear circuit within Nuclearelectrica and created the premises for this sector to be the driving force in terms of clean electricity production.”
Delgaz Grid has seen a nearly 10-fold increase in prosumer grid connection requests in 2022. The company has also launched a pilot project to test the use of hydrogen for home heating and is interested in becoming a hydrogen producer. “Without massive investments in distribution networks, there can be no energy transition, which is why we want a return to normality in terms of the mechanism for setting distribution tariffs, which were frozen last year,” says Cristian Secoșan, CEO of Delgaz Grid. “We are also pursuing smart metering as a priority. For the coming years (2023- 2028) we plan to install another 425,000 meters.
In 2030 Romania will have around 11-12 GW of installed wind and solar capacity, in roughly equal proportions, Zsuzsa Bereschi, senior project manager, Horváth & Partners, told us. She also estimates a doubling of biomass and biogas capacity to 0.5 GW, with Cernavodă power plants 3 and 4 doubling nuclear capacity. Romania has enormous potential and many projects in the pipeline, but new investments need to barriers and lack of predictability to be removed as soon as possible, said Zsuzsa Bereschi. “We want to create added value with these energy resources, e.g. low emission chemicals, green steel, green building materials, etc.”
Decision-makers, experts and managers are also featured in the new edition of Energynomics Magazine. Among them, Virgil Popescu – Ministerul Energiei, Cristian Secoșan – Delgaz Grid, Radu Crăciun – BCR Pensii, Frank Neel – OMV Petrom, Zoltán Nagy-Bege – ANRE, Ioannis Kalapodas – European Energy, Mihai Căruntu – AAFBR, Ajay Aggarwal – LIBERTY Steel Group Europe, Mark Beacom – Black Sea Oil & Gas, Ștefan Vuza – Chimcomplex, Ondrej Safar – CEZ Group România, Zsuzsa Bereschi – Horváth & Partners, Volker Rossmann – Pixii..
We maintain an integrated approach on the entire industry, with four distinct sections for each large sector – electricity, oil and gas, renewables, thermal – and a section of general interest.
