  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The energy sector falls under the responsibility of the Ministry of Energy (new government as of November 2015).

    ANRE, the Romanian National Energy Regulatory Authority, regulates the electricity and gas sectors. It was created in 1998 to regulate the...

  • Energy Supply


    Energy resources are rather abundant in Romania. Its natural gas reserves, which had seen a strong increase in recent years, were revised downward to 109 bcm in 2015. Oil reserves amount to 82 Mt. The country's hydroelectric potential is also substantial (estimated at 70 TWh). Lignite reserves...

  • Energy Prices


    Electricity prices remained relatively stable between 2008 and 2012, at around €10c/kWh. They rose significantly in 2013 (+8% for industry and +22% for households) and have remained broadly stable since then (+0.8% for households and -5.3% for industry). Industrial prices are now 18% lower than...

  • Energy Consumption

    Energy consumption per capita is about 1.6 toe (2015), which is 47% below the EU average, and electricity consumption amounts to 2 500 kWh/cap (55% below the EU average). On the whole, total energy consumption grew between 2000 and 2006 (+1.7%/year), before declining by 3.2%/year until 2013....

  • 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. The energy sector has had to make substantial...
