175.5 MW of new PV to be installed in Romania in six months
175.5 of a 203.5 total of installed PV capacity were wired in this year’s first half in Romani. In the coming years, the country’s PV pipeline amounts to 2.7 GW in coming years.
Ştefan-Doru Bucătaru, CEO of Romania’s transmission company and electricity system operator, Transelectrica, announced that the country reached 203.5 MW of PV installed capacity.
He also said that, as Transelectrica’s data shows, there is another 4.6 GW of solar PV project that provides either technical connection or connection contracts. Moreover, Bucătaru announced that announced that “As per investors’ data provided in 2013, about 2.7 GW will be put into operation.”
In spite of government introductions of a new set of measures in this year’s June set to frighten foreign investments, Romania is seen as a favorable energy market for PV investments.
The country’s electricity market has been through some changes in the past few years. The institution with a major role in the electricity sector, Transelectrica, is divided into eight territorial transmission branches plus an metering operator for electricity transfers on the wholesale market.
Power Exchange and Metering operators are part of the company’s subsidiaries and have a role in the administration area.
