  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The energy sector falls under the responsibility of the Ministry of Energy.

    ANRE, the Romanian National Energy Regulatory Authority, regulates the electricity and gas sectors. Since 2010, it is also in charge of energy efficiency policies.


  • Energy Supply


    Oil production has remained broadly stable since 2012 (3.9 Mt in 2016), after a steady decline since 2002 (-45% from 7.4 Mt in 2002). Oil imports have been rising since 2013, reaching 10 Mt in 2015 and 2016 (7.6 Mt of crude oil and 2.6 Mt of oil products).

    The refining capacity has been...

  • Energy Prices


    Industrial and residential gas prices are lower than the EU average (-14% and -54%, respectively, in 2016). Gas prices, which tripled between 2003 and 2007 before declining by 20% until 2009, have been growing at a slower pace since then: they rose by 2%/year between 2009 and 2016 for households...

  • Energy Consumption

    Energy consumption per capita is about 1.7 toe (2016), which is 47% below the EU average, and electricity consumption amounts to 2 600 kWh/cap (53% below the EU average).

    Total energy consumption declined by 3.7%/year between 2006 and 2013; it has remained stable since then (33 Mtoe in...

  • Issues & Prospects

    Romania is facing a decline in production because of the lack of investments in installations, despite the increase of hydrocarbon reserves (in particular in gas). To boost its production, the country is increasingly opening up to foreign companies. Romania is a net energy importer (24% of its...
