Electricity market in Romania

Energy sources in Romania

Romania's energy sector is characterized by a diverse mix of sources. A significant portion of its electricity generation stems from hydroelectric power, coal, and nuclear energy. The country has a notable capacity for hydroelectric energy, thanks to its geographic features, particularly the Carpathian Mountains and the Danube River.

Energy sources in Romania

Coal, despite environmental concerns, remains a key component in Romania's energy mix. The country also relies on nuclear power, with the Cernavodă Nuclear Power Plant being a major contributor. This diversification helps in maintaining a stable electricity supply.

Main source of energy

The primary source of energy in Romania is hydroelectric power. The country's topography and river systems provide conducive conditions for hydroelectric plants. These plants not only supply a significant portion of the national electricity demand but also play a crucial role in ensuring energy security.

Moreover, hydroelectric power is a renewable and cleaner source of energy compared to fossil fuels, aligning with the broader European Union goals of reducing carbon emissions and promoting sustainable energy sources.

Romania in the EU electricity market

Romania is an integral part of the European Union's electricity market. This integration allows for cross-border electricity trading, enhancing energy security and market efficiency within the region. Romania's connection to the EU electricity grid facilitates both import and export of electricity, depending on domestic demand and production levels.

Furthermore, Romania's interconnectivity with neighboring countries, like Hungary, Bulgaria, and Ukraine, plays a significant role in regional energy cooperation. This interconnectedness not only supports Romania's energy needs but also contributes to the stabilization and integration of the broader European electricity market.

Future prospects and challenges

Looking forward, Romania faces challenges in modernizing its energy infrastructure and increasing the share of renewable energy in its mix. The country is working towards aligning with the EU's climate goals, which include reducing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing the use of renewable energy sources.

Investments in renewable energy technologies, such as wind and solar power, are expected to grow. These developments are crucial for Romania's long-term energy sustainability and its commitments under the European Green Deal. The modernization of its energy infrastructure will also be pivotal in enhancing the efficiency and reliability of electricity supply in the country.


Energy saving tips

Switch to energy-saving light bulbs

Lighting is not the thing that uses the most electricity, but it can still be a good investment to switch to energy-efficient and LED lights. These provide up to 10x more light with the same amount of energy.

Take a shorter shower or install an energy-saving shower

With the energy-saving shower, you can save up to 50% energy compared to standard shower heads. Or you can shower half the time. With the electricity price today in Romania you can save 0.20 € for each shower.

Questions and answers about electricity

What is a kWh?

kWh stands for kilowatt-hour, and is a unit that tells how much energy is used in one hour. Kilo means a thousand. So for example, if you have a 1000 watt oven on for one hour, you have used 1 kilowatt-hour. For a light bulb, which may only consume 10 watt, it will take 100 hours (just over 4 days) before you have used 1 kWh.
