WWF Romania : PNRR is one opportunity to develop a  climatically neuter economy until 2050


The National Plan for Recovery and Resilience (PNRR) represents an opportunity for Romania to develop and get an economy neuter from the climatic point of view until 2050, by the adoption of the newest and greenest existing technologies, stated , in an interview offered to AGERPRES, Mihai Constantin,  Climate and Energy Policy Officer with WWF Romania.

The specialist of the organisation spoke, similarly, in the interview, about the factors which led to the increase of tariffs for electricity and natural gas, as well as about long term measures which the government should adopt to support the users, beyond the compensation of the bills, measure which solves the issue ‘ for a short period of time’. As regards the idea of capping tariffs, Constantin considers that it is unlikely to happen as ‘the European legislation does not allow it’.

According to the environment expert, the authorities in Bucharest opted for projects through which to support the use of natural gas, although Romania should have supported in PNRR the development of renewable energy and complementary measures, such as the creation of capacities for energy storage and modernization of the electricity transport grids.
