The co-founder and head of the Energy Policy Group (EPG) thinktank agreed to assume responsibility for the process of creating Romania’s energy strategy for the 15 year period through 2030, with an outlook for another 20 years, the Business Review reported. Radu Dudău is an advisor to energy minister Victor Grigorescu and was participating in the creation of the energy strategy in 2014. He is an associate professor at the Faculty of Philosophy, part of the Bucharest University. The article said Dudău will coordinate work groups and public debates.

In late January, the ministry hosted the first round of consultations. Grigorescu gathered representatives of energy producers, processors, distributors and suppliers, as well as those of consumers’ associations, portal Nine o’Clock said. The civil society, universities and research institutes will also participate, alongside representatives of the diplomatic corps. The minister is optimistic that the document will be finalized by the end of the year. The article notes Grigorescu’s point of view differs fundamentally from that of his predecessor Andrei Gerea, who was on the verge of hiring, at great expense, a foreign consultant in order to finalize the document.
