Organized by the City Hall of Iasi on November 25th 2013, the conference debated upon topics such as the energy modernization of residential and central administration buildings, the promotion of efficient cogeneration, centralized urban heating and energy from renewable sources. The main factors highlighted which influence the efficiency of centralized heating as well as the affordability of invoices, analysed in the Romania’s current economic and social context.
Energy Efficiency Forum in Romania
Romanian Association for Promoting Energy Efficiency (ARPEE) is developed the first White Book on Energy Efficiency in Romania.
During a work meeting, organized with the National Bank of Romania (BNR) and the Romanian Energy Regulatory Authority (ANRE), the bases to this document very important to the Romanian economy, were set up. The event took place on the 15th November 2013, in the process of the transposing of Energy Efficiency Directive (2012.27.EU) in Romania.
The debate was attended by representatives of the Government, central and local authorities, the European Commission, the Romanian Parliament and MEPs, energy regulators, the Association’s founding companies, consultants, and internal and international funders.
Romania has a large efficiency potential regarding the consumption but also production, transport and distribution of energy, and identifying new energy efficiency measures designed to stimulate citizens , public authorities and industry to better manage their energy consumption will be an important step in limiting the impact on the energy bill.
