Romania’s energy intensity is 1.9 times higher than the European average, which places Romania on the 3rd place in the top of the most energy intensive countries in the EU.
The energy sector in particular, but also transport and industry, is characterized by a strong need to increase energy efficiency. Reducing energy consumption has become a goal for both residential and industrial consumers, due to the liberalization of the electricity market and investments in the area.
Romania aims to have a share of 30.7% of domestic energy consumption in 2030 from renewable resources, the most ambitious target of green energy in Central and Eastern Europe. In 2019, the share of green energy already exceeded 24%.
AHK Romania through its econet romania platform has a rich experience in the field of energy efficiency and renewable energies and regularly carries out various projects in Germany and Romania, as part of the Export Initiative “Energy Solutions-Made in Germany” of the Federal Ministry of Economy and Energy in Germany.
