Vice President of the National Regulatory Authority for Energy (ANRE), Zoltan Nagy-Bege said that Romania could set a target of 31-32 % of electricity produced from renewable energy sources (RES) by 2030, much higher than current target for 2020 – 24 %.
Nagy-Bege said that the clean energy legislation package for all Europeans is discussed at the EU level, a legislative package containing several regulations and several draft directives, the most important being the new directive on renewable energy, the new Energy Efficiency Directive, the Energy Union and for the European energy markets. According to him, the legislative package could be approved during the Austrian presidency of the EU Council in the second half of this year. Otherwise, the adoption will take place after Romania takes over the Council’s presidency from 1 January 2019.
