Hidroelectrica is targeting a hydro-energy potential of 2.28 TWh/year in 2025, up from 1.011 TWh/year in 2009-2012, which will entail a total investment of nearly 1.88 billion euros in new planning, according to data released by the company at a recent roundtable conference on Romania’s hydropower potential.
The company is planning to harness 20 new river sectors that could generate a potential of 1.246 TWh/year, for which preliminary studies are being conducted. Harnessing works for the years 2009-2012 are currently underway.
According to the data released by Hidroelectrica, Romania could count on a potential of 20.86 TWh/year in 2025, which is 64.78 percent of the country’s hydropower potential that can be harnessed for economic purposes.
