„We need a real national program for energy, which would not only stimulate production or subsidize alternative energy, but finance research, training of professionals, production and delivery of services by companies based in Romania,” said Victor Negrescu, member of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats Group in the European Parliament. Fourth edition of ‘Romania Energy Day’ event was held at the European Parliament in Brussels, under the title ‘The Energy Union: Challenges and Opportunities in Central and South-Eastern Europe’, reported. „For example, for the EUR 35 billion provided annually by the European Commission, mostly for research, I would like to see the first Romanian project,” Negrescu said.

Ensuring the energy security is a priority for Romania and co-regional cooperation is an essential element of the European Union’s energy policy, ambassador Mihnea Motoc, permanent representative of Romania to the EU, said according to a press release. „We appreciate the European Commission’s initiative to create a framework for cooperation in Central and South Eastern Europe (Cesec). We hope that the list of priority regional projects, to be adopted by the high level group of Cesec in early July, in Croatia, to create a regional energy system through which each member state in the region to have access, in time, at least to three different sources of supply – this regional framework will make a real difference in the future in terms of enhancing energy security,” he added.
