New target to increase the share of renewable energy to 27% by 2030 will have a major impact on Romania because, as a country, we have already reached the target for energy from renewable sources assumed for 2020 and 24% of consumption, on Friday said for Green Report, Ciprian Glodean, president and founding member of the Romanian Photovoltaic Industry Association (RPIA).
The agreement result is a bit dissapointing, as the initial proposed target was 30%. For Romania will not have a major impact because we already we have reached our target for 2020 and the new target set we could reach even 2020 or even earlier. In the circumstances I do not think that the Romanian state will have an incentive to support the development of this sector, "said President RPIA.
