RWEA: Investments in renewable sources of energy should be included in Recovery and Resilience Facility

The Government should include in the Recovery and Resilience Facility investments in renewable energy sources, in order to be able to access European funds for this purpose, according to a release of the Romania Wind Energy Association (RWEA) sent on Wednesday.

These investments are essential for economic rebuilding at the national level at the end of this crisis period, claim the investors in the wind energy production.

Furthermore, RWEA requests that investment projects that are part of the Recovery and Resilience Facility not be accessible only to public administrations, but to all actors that can support a fast and efficient economic recovery.

"RWEA expressed joy and support for the Government's initiative to elaborate the National Plan for Recovery and Resilience, but finds with surprise the absence of renewable energy projects in the category of projects provided for in Art. 2 paragraph (1) of the document approved through Emergency Ordinance on August 31, 2020, as well as the fact that the projects are addressed exclusively to public administrations. This absence is all the more surprising given that investments in renewable energy are called by the European authorities an essential pillar not only of the Green Deal, but also of the European economic recovery plan, through its instruments, Next Generation EU and the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF)," the release says.

The Romanian Wind Energy Association (RWEA) represents an industry with 3000 MW in installed wind energy in Romania by companies like CEZ, Enel, EDP, Engie, Vestas, with developers of new energy capabilities and suppliers of connected services.
