Renewable energy in Romania

A study publish by Coface shows that Romania has made considerable progress in terms of the share of renewable in final energy consumption at the national level.

"In 2013, according to Eurostat, it increased to 24%, 50% more than the level recorded 10 years ago, being above average for the EU (29) and 15% respectively. However, Romania is far behind countries such as Sweden or Norway, only registering a share of over 50%, "says Coface.

Local production of wind power stations in the period January-August 2015 was 4728.8 mln. KWh, increasing by 1783.0 mln. KWh compared to the same period last year, and photovoltaic solar energy produced in the mentioned period was 1510.2 mln. kWh, up by 536.7 mil. KWh compared to the corresponding period of 2014.

Ingeteam hits 30 GW installed wind capacity milestone

Ingeteam, an independent supplier of electrical conversion equipment, has announced today that it reached the milestone of 30 gigawatts (GW) of installed wind power capacity worldwide. The company hit this important mark after the commissioning of power converters accounting for 2 GW of installed capacity during the first semester of 2015, a 17% increase over the previous year. In total, Ingeteam has installed 20,757 power converters globally.

This increase was mainly accomplished by its leadership position in two of the world’s largest emerging wind energy markets, namely Brazil and India. Ingeteam has strategically targeted these two regions, which became the company’s core growth engines over the last few years.

Ingeteam opened its Brazilian subsidiary Ingeteam Ltda. in 1999 and started producing wind power converters in 2011 at its manufacturing facility in Sao Paulo. Since then, the company has supplied 1.5 GW wind energy capacity to this market. This accounts for more than 20% of all installed wind power capacity in the country.

Over the past year, Ingeteam has significantly expanded its Brazilian facility to 5,000 m² and created up to 125 jobs for the local production of wind power converters, increasing its maximum annual production capacity to 3.8 GW. Additionally, all power converters manufactured at its facility comply with the local content requirements established by Brazil’s national development bank BNDES in order to gain Finame accreditation.

In India, established since 2012, Ingeteam has reached a clear leadership position. The company ended 2014 with more than 20% of all installed wind power capacity in the country. To date, about 8% of all wind power capacity in India has been commissioned by Ingeteam.

According to GWEC, Brazil was the world’s 4th largest market with nearly 2.5 GW installed last year, and moved into 10th place in the global cumulative rankings. India is the second largest wind market in Asia and added 2,315 MW of new wind power in 2014, up 34% from 2013. India’s cumulative installations reached 22.5 GW at the end of December 2014, keeping the Indian wind power market firmly in the top five rankings globally. Both, the Brazilian and Indian markets are expected to have grown substantially in 2015 and this positive trend of growth is expected to continue in the coming years.

Appropriations for increased energy efficiency in Ukraine

According to Sergei Savchuk  after the release of the energy efficiency program was granted 44,767 loans worth 743.7 million hryvnia. Only in October 19 was granted loans worth 10 million hryvnia. Tis have recovered 84 condominiums in various regions of the country. The program aims to reduce spending on energy cost of using fossil fuels or Russian gas.

7th International Conference - Solar Energy in Romania

After several years of growth and innovation, the PV Industry is facing another challenging period, with shifting market dynamics from large scale projects to small and medium systems.  The Law on Renewable Energy Sources adopted in June 2015 provides opportunities for the development of photovoltaics in Romania.

Legislation (mainly law 122/2015) on regulated tariffs for small renewable players (feed-in tariff) opens new opportunities for small projects, including PV and could enter into force latest October 2015. The support scheme will be approved for projects less than 500 KW. Regulation tariffs should come into force October 2015.

All these aspects, such as procedures for the various stages of PV systems investment process, and the introduction of  a quality mark for installation companies, will be among the topics discussed  during the 7th International Conference - Solar Energy in Romania. Thanks to active participation, the conference participants will be able to take part in creating and promoting good practices connected to the PV systems installation.

2nd International Workshop - Energy Efficiency in Heat and Power Generation

Cogeneration is the simultaneous production, in one process, of thermal, electric and / or mechanic energy. The production of high efficient cogeneration achieves primary energy savings of at least 10% compared with the reference values for the separate production of electric and thermal energy.

Since 2009, to support high efficiency cogeneration process, a support scheme has been introduced in Romania that involves a bonus offered for each MWh of electric energy delivered in network. For getting benefits from the support scheme, producers of electric and thermal energy in high efficient cogeneration, have to ask the National Authority Regulation (ANRE). Manufacturers can benefit from this scheme until 2023, for a period not exceeding 11 consecutive years.

Producers of electric and thermal energy in cogeneration, from renewable energy sources are able to choose either this scheme, either a support scheme for the promotion of the electric energy produced from renewable energy sources. The two schemes can not be combined (According

Econet Romania will organise in collaboration with REECO, international trade fair and conference organiser for renewable energy all over Europe the 2nd International Workshop - Energy Efficiency in Heat and Power Generation, on the 19th of November 2015, at the Palace Hall in Bucharest. The workshop will focus on cogeneration in the energy and industry sector, offering information about the most important subjects as well as giving best practice examples.
