Renewable & Solar Perspectives

Sunshine Solar Energy


Renewable energy market in Romania is expected to experience a consistent growth in the coming years thanks to new sources development. EU energy strategy will drive market growth since it is targeting to reach a 38% total energy production from renewable sources by 2020.

Initiatives on renewables in Romania should be targeted differently depending on area specificities since the Country has a relevant potential in all the main technologies. Photovoltaic projects are particularly interesting in South-East area where irradiation can reach a level of 1650 kWh/m2.

Key outcomes
  • Best locations in terms of solar irradiation are in South-East area

  • Peaks in Dobrogea region with 1650 kWh/m2 global irradiation

  • Bucarest area (more than 1500 kWh/m2) is also one of the most promising also thanks to a better developed electricity infrastructure
