Green energy output from Romanian hydroelectric power, wind and photovoltaics will grow 14.65% through 2019, according to a power balance estimate of the National Prognosis Board (CNP), Agerpres reported. Renewable energy facilities hit an aggregate capacity of 5.1 GW at the end of November 2015, power grid operator Transelectrica’s data show, according to an article by news agency Act Media.

There were four wind farms with a capacity of 3.13 GW connected to the system, the capacity of photovoltaic parks was 1.31 GW, small hydro facilities accounted for 583 MW and biomass energy projects had a cumulative capacity of 103 MW.

The green power capacity installed in the system fell from 5.18 GW, recorded as of October 31. The most substantial decline was for wind farms, dipping from 3.19 GW. At the end of 2014, renewable capacities connected to the system stood at a combined 5.2 GW, Transelectrica said.

Hydro, wind and photovoltaic energy will increase from 2.32 million tonnes of oil equivalent in 2015 to 2.405 million this year, to 2.49 million in 2017, to 2.575 million in the subsequent year, and to 2.66 million tonnes in 2019, CNP estimates. Nuclear power output will be flat through 2019, at 2.865 million tonnes of oil equivalent per year. Total imports of electricity should count for 260,000 tonnes of oil equivalent annually until 2019, and will represent 2.2% of total imports of primary energy resources in 2016, 2.1% in 2017 and 2% in 2018 and 2019.
