Coal-based electricity producer Energy Complex (EC) Oltenia has joined the Electricity Producers Association – HENRO.

The statement from the company reads that the experience of EC Oltenia, as well as of the founding members of HENRO: Hidroelectrica, Nuclearelectrica and Romgaz will contribute to the development and fulfillment of the Association’s objectives, correlated with the targets assumed by Romania regarding the energy transition and Green Deal. Thus, HENRO represents electricity producers that operate generation capacities of over 8,000 MW, providing over 70 % of Romania’s annual electricity consumption, with prospects of completing new electricity generation capacities.

HENRO aims to become the voice of the most important electricity producers, regardless of the production technology or the nature of the share capital, inviting the producers to join the new Association. HENRO’s main purpose is to represent electricity producers in dialogue with authorities and stakeholders, to express and support common positions on electricity issues and to promote market development by encouraging the principles of a liberalized market, such as fair competition, transparency, non-discriminatory access and best practices for the benefit of the end customer.
