nergy means security and the decarbonisation process cannot take place without nuclear energy, Energy Minister Virgil Popescu said on Thursday after a ministerial meeting of the Transatlantic Partnership for Energy and Climate Cooperation (P-TECC) in Warsaw, Poland.

At the same time, during the meeting with our US partners we discussed energy cooperation in the context of the 10th anniversary of the Strategic Partnership between Romania and USA and the Romania-US Agreement for cooperation on nuclear energy projects in Cernavoda. I look forward to working with our US partners to promote our energy and climate security, to develop projects for cooperation in the nuclear field, but also for the development of the rare metals industry in Romania. I also had fruitful discussions with my colleagues from Poland, Serbia and Ukraine regarding the development of joint investment projects to strengthen energy security,” Popescu said.

According to a press release of the Ministry of Energy, the Romanian official called for the adoption of a strategic vision on the development of our energy system that should be focused on mitigating climate change and ensuring a fair and equitable transition.
