Another big problem that raises inrenewable energy sector is that it creates imbalances in the energy system, because the wind and solar sources are volatile and depend on the whims of the weather. Moreover, the country's wind potential is concentrated in Dobrogea , where they are located also the nuclear reactors.
Transelectrica warned that the national system can retrieved 4,000 MW from wind turbines, considering the received network connection for projects of over 30,000 MW, of which 8,000 MW have already signed contracts.
So, after a few months, general manager of Transelectrica , Horia Hahaianu says you should set a limit for projects that wish to receive notices.
Last spring, the Bulgarian Parliament adopted such a law to put the brakes to wind projects, in order to avoid overloading of the network and increase the price of electricity.
To strengthen network, Transelectrica needs hundred of millions, money that does not have. Another solution would be achieved as soon as possible the submarine cable between Romania and Turkey, the country where electricity would be exported.
