Electrical power stations out of renewable sources of over 100 million euro will put into operation in Romania

Several power stations on renewable sources with installed power cumulated of over 60 MW and total investments of over 100 million euro will be put into operation during the next period in Romania.

‘In the period to come there will be connected to the RET ( the Electrical Transport Grid) of Transelectrica 40 MW in wind power stations ((CEE Babadag 3 – 30 MW ?i CEE Casimcea 1 – 10 MW), 18 MW in photovoltaic power stations (CEF Onesti), 15 MW in biomass power stations (CEB Reci)’ sent the national electricity transport operator Transelectrica.

Taking into consideration the estimated necessary costs for the construction of MW depending on the source of energy means that these investments come to a total of over 100 million euro.

The installed power in the Energy national system on 1 April 2015 was 22,308 MW as a total: water, 6,376 MW (28.5%), coal 5.718 MW (25,6%), hydrocarb 4.539 MW (20,3%), wind 2.953 MW (13,2%), nuclear 1.413 MW (6,3%), solar 1.208 MW (5,4%), biomass 100 MW (0,45%) and geothermal 0,05 MW.

The production of electricity of Romania in 2014 was 60,6 TWh, being on the increase by 11.3% as compared to the production made in 2013 of 54,4 TWh.

‘The growth of domestic production was determined on the one hand by the increase of the domestic consumption in 2014 by 1.9% as compared to 2013and on the other hand by the increase of the balance of electricity traded transborderly by 254.7% as compared to 2013’ the data sent byTranselectrica show.

At the same time, according to the plan for development of the electricity transport grid for the period 2014 – 2023 made by Transelectrica, the net production of electricity of Romania could grow to 68 TWh in 2018 and to 77.4 TWh in 2023.

The same document shows that 80% of the thermoenergy groups have their lifetime overdue. Moreover,for the period 2014 – 2023 the analysis of the development of the grid was taken into consideration as a programme of withdrawals from exploitation of some thermoelectrical groups when they reach the end of their lifetime or due to reduced efficiency and non-compliance with the requirements of the European Union regarding pollution, with a total of 3,245 MW available net power, out of which 2,263 MW until 2018 including.

As regards the intentions to install new groups, according to the info sent by the existing producers, they have an available net power estimated at about 6,231 MW, excluding the power stations based on renewable sources of energy.

The Directives of the European Union which aim at the combat of the climatic changes and the promotion of the use of renewable sources of energy have as target the reduction by 20% against 1990 of the greenhouse gas emissions, the increase by 20% of efficiency and a share of 20% of energy out of renewable sources in the total consumption of energy, at the level of the EU until 2020.
