Romania to hold first renewables tender in H1
The Romanian government has revealed plans to hold the country's first tender for utility-scale renewables projects in the first half of this year. "Through various tender schemes, at least 3 GW (gigawatt) of new renewable energy capacity will be added to the country's electricity mix by 2026," the executive director of the Romanian Photovoltaic Industry Association (RPIA), Mihai Balan, told pv-magazine.
"And around 2 GW of this will come from solar plants." Balan said the funds to implement the tender scheme will come from the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (NRRP) and the European Union Modernisation Fund.
The authorities also plan to implement a contract for difference (CfD) scheme from 2023, with another 3.5 GW of renewables capacity to be contracted by 2025. Balan said that there are currently between 20 GW and 30 GW of large-scale renewable energy projects in various stages of development.
