Romania: Grid operator expects additional 60MW to be connected from RES, SEE Energy News
More power from renewable sources with a cumulative installed capacity of over 60 MW and total investment of over 100 million will be put into operation in the near future, announced Transelectrica.
Grid operator Transelectrica expects that the Electric Transport Network (TEN) will connect 40 MW wind farm (EEC Babadag 3-30 MW and EEC Casimcea 1-10 MW), 18 MW photovoltaic power plant (CEF Onesti), 15 MW Biomass power plants (CEB Cold) . Given the estimated costs necessary to build a MW depending on the energy source that these investments totals over 100 million.
The installed capacity of the National Power System on 1 April 2015 was 22,308 MW in total: Water 6376 MW (28.5%), coal 5718 MW (25.6%), hydrocarbons 4.539 MW (20.3%), 2953 MW wind power (13.2%), 1,413 MW nuclear (6.3%), 1,208 MW solar (5.4%), biomass, 100 MW (0.45%) and 0.05 MW geothermal.
Romania’s electricity production in 2014 was 60.6 TWh, an increase of 11.3 % compared to that achieved in 2013. “Increasing domestic production was determined on the one hand by the increase in domestic consumption in 2014 by 1.9% compared to 2013 and on the other hand by the increase of cross-border electricity traded 254 7% compared with 2013, “reads the data submitted by Transelectrica.
