Study: Romanians think their country is on the right path in transition to renewable energy


Romanians consider with optimism the country's progress in the transition to the use of energy from renewable sources and already consider that half of the distance has already been completed, according to an opinion poll made by E.ON and Kantar EMNID in ten countries.

European countries have set ambitious objectives for the passage from the production of energy based on conventional sources (coal,gas) to energy from renewable sources (wind, water , photovoltaic) but one of the questions of the moment is how big is the progress made in that direction.

On the other hand, asked about their opinion on Romania's progress in that transition to renewable energy sources, respondents from other countries think Romania has already completed a third of the path.

British respondents see with the same confidence Romania's transition to “green”  sources and consider they have completed 40%of the road. Respondents from Turkey say that Romania has made serious progress in that chapter. They consider an advance of 56.7%, which for Romania is the best result of the opinion poll.

The Danes consider Romania has just completed 25.1% of the long progress to transition in the energy market, while the Germans estimate we have completed only 26% of the path.

On the other hand, the Romanians rank Sweden first in the transition to the use of renewable resources with 73.4%. Germany ranks second with only 0.2% behind Sweden and is followed by Denmark with 73.1%.

For a European average, Sweden, Denmark and Germany hold the first three positions in the top of the most advanced countries in the process of changing the energy system. They are followed by Great Britain, France, Italy, the Czech Republic and Hungary, while Turkey and Romania are on the last positions.

Results of the opinion poll are part of the study “Living in Europe”, for which E.ON and Kantar EMNID interviewed 10,000 people from the Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Romania, Sweden, Turkey and Great Britain.
