Romania – 4400 MW of renewable energy sources installed in the last 4 years: 60% wind and 25% solar PV

Romania – 4400 MW of renewable energy sources installed in the last 4 years: 60% wind and 25% solar PV

Transelectrica: Renewable energy production capacity reached 4,412 MW

Renewable energy projects reached a total capacity of 4,412 MW at the end of January 2014 , according to Transelectrica.

Thus, the system has wind projects with a capacity of 2,704 MW, solar parks with a total capacity of 1,077 MW, while small hydro reached 536 MW and biomass projects – a capacity of 95 MW.

Renewable energy producers receive subsidies in the form of green certificates, which are levied on all consumers, including the household and are highlighted separately in monthly electricity bill, according to Agerpres.

For 2013, the Energy Regulatory Authority (ANRE) set last week  a mandatory quota of green certificates per MWh of 0.224 GSs, up from 0.1188 level per MWh for 2012.

Romania has assumed that 24% of electricity consumption in 2020 will come from renewable sources, but ANRE announced that this target has already been reached on 1 January 2014.

Ziarul Financiar – Ţara “morilor de vânt”: parcurile eoliene au ajuns la o capacitate de 1.000 MW după investiţii de peste 1,5 miliarde de euro

News about the development of the wind energy sector in Romania – 1GW online today:
(articol nou-aparut despre cum evolueaza sectorul energiei eoliene in Romania – 1000MW racordati astazi la retea)

–––– Autor: Roxana Petrescu ––––

Capacitatea parcurilor eoliene funcţionale în România a ajuns la 1.009,5 MW, cu 40% mai mare comparativ cu cea a unui reactor al centralei nucleare de la Cernavodă, investiţiile depăşind 1,5 miliarde de euro dacă se ţine cont de faptul că fiecare MW instalat costă între 1,5 şi 1,7 milioane de euro. Datele Transelectrica arată că în acest moment funcţionează 11 parcuri eoliene, toate fiind localizate în Dobrogea.

Cehii de la CEZ au cel mai mare parc eolian cu o capacitate de 387,5 MW în comuna dobrogeană Fântânele, în total funcţionând 155 de turbine de câte 2,5 MW fiecare.

Următorul ca mărime este parcul realizat de Energias de Portugal în comuna Peştera. Investiţia are o capacitate de 90 de MW şi cuprinde 30 de turbine eoliene. Tot Energias de Portugal mai are două parcuri eoliene de câte 69 de MW fiecare la Cernavodă.

Spaniolii de la Iberdrola au pus şi ei în funcţiune un parc eolian de 80 de MW în localitatea Mihai Viteazu. Italienii de la Enel au trei parcuri eoliene, fiecare de câte 70 de MW, precum şi unul mai mic de 34 de MW, toate situate în Tulcea.

Petrom, cea mai mare companie din România, figurează la rândul ei pe lista Transelectrica cu un parc eolian de 45 de MW în comuna dobrogeană Dorobanţu. Cel mai mic parc eolian ca şi capacitate din lista Transelectrica este deţinut de ButanGas. Acesta are 25 de MW şi este localizat în Siliştea, Dobrogea.

New Support Legislation Finally Passed in Romania

Excellent news for the wind energy sector: today the long-awaited Romanian legislation of support for the production of energy from renewable sources has been passed; it should be applied starting next week. It only took 3 years! 😉
Many thanks to the contributors!

Welcome to Fantanele

Welcome to Fantanele

 

Citeam si citesc in fiecare zi articole, relatari si pareri despre mega-proiectul eolian Fantanele, ba chiar mi-a scris un prieten si pe Facebook.

Cam ce gen de articol e cel mai reprezentativ:

Who's Who

Who's Who

 

Dupa parerea mea, avem de retinut ca, in ciuda dificultatilor, CEZ a reusit sa instaleze si sa dea in folosinta peste o suta de turbine dintr-un proiect de 600 de MW, conceput in doua faze: 139 de turbine intr-o prima faza, „Fantanele Est si Vest”, acum completa, si 101 intr-o etapa ulterioara, pe care intentineaza sa o finalizeze la anul.  E drept ca data finalizarii investitiei pentru faza intai a fost decalata cu cateva luni, dar daca ne uitam la anvergura proiectului si la obstacolele de diferite tipuri cu care s-au confruntat, aceasta intarziere pare mai curand motiv de lauda pentru cat e de redusa.

Drept semn de apreciere pentru succesul colegilor de breasla care au contribuit la acest succes, iata o mica galerie de imagini, pentru care le multumesc bunilor nostri parteneri de munca intru dezvoltarea de proiecte eoliene.

CEZ to complete construction of EUR 1.1bn wind park in 2011

Wall Street, 30 Sep 2010, online:-

The Czech energy group CEZ estimates that the construction of its 600 MW wind farm project in Dobrogea region, in Romania, will be completed in 2011. The investment in the project reaches EUR 1.10bn (USD 1.50bn). The company started construction works at Cogealac wind park, with works expected to be completed in 2011, while at Fantanele wind farm there are already 129 turbines in operation. Recently, CEZ announced that the Cogealac wind park was put ‘on hold’ due to misunderstandings in relation to the construction permits.

Transelectrica + Wind Energy = Love? ;)

Am participat vinerea tracuta la un „seminar pe teme energetice„, asa cum este citat in ultimele zile in presa, in fel de fel de declaratii in legatura cu subiecte de interes, precum Electra si Hidroenergetica etc.

Uite un subiect care ar fi trebuit sa fie mai prezent pe tapet, intrucat s-a discutat despre investitiile pe care trebuie sa le realizeze EDF in reteaua franceza de transport al energiei electrice (asa cum puteti vedea in prezentarea tinuta de Tristan Bosser de la GDF Suez si de dl. Manea de la Alstom, daca va intereseaza), insa nu s-a discutat mai concret despre planurile Transelectrica de a exporta excesul de energie din Dobrogea, desi a fost prezent dl. Ciprian Diaconu, directorul Diviziei Tehnice din cadrul Transelectrica, un profesionist deosebit de discret, persoana responsabila cu aceste proiecte:

Transelectrica va investi 250 mil euro în următorii 5-6 ani pentru racordarea eolienelor la reţea

Transelectrica (TEL) va investi, în următorii cinci-şase ani, în zona Dobrogei, aproximativ 250 milioane euro pentru constucţia a opt staţii de transformare şi a liniilor electrice care vor conecta la sistemul naţional o capacitate de până la 4.000 MW instalaţi în centrale eoliene.

„Aceste investiţii vor fi corelate cu planurile investitorilor în centrale eoliene”, a declarat, miercuri, şeful direcţiei de strategie corporativă din companie, Răzvan Purdilă.

Potrivit lui Purdilă, în acest moment există contracte de racordare la sistemul naţional pentru aproximativ 3.600 MW instalaţi în centrale eoliene.

Transelectrica este controlată de stat, prin Ministerul Economiei.

 –– am incheiat citatul ––

Acestea fiind zise, ne bucuram, pentru ca exact de genul asta de atitudine avem nevoie din partea Transelectrica.
Sigur, capacitatea de echilibrare a sistemului cu surse quick-firing este celalalt complement pe care il asteptam, ca sa putem exploata linistiti mai departe un potential energetic disponibil in conditii cel putin rezonabile pe termen mediu si lung, adica sustenabil.

Iberdrola Energie Romania – news

In case you missed last week’s news about Iberdrola Energie Romania, the company with the largest annouced installed capacity in windfarms in Romania:

Romanian Energy Watchdog ANRE Allows Iberdrola Energie Romania To Supply Electricity

Romania’s energy regulatory authority ANRE granted Iberdrola Energie Romania, the local subsidiary of Spanish power utility Iberdrola, a two-year energy supply license, the regulator said.

The license came into effect on January 28 and gives the company the right to export energy, to sell it to eligible consumers and other license holders. Moreover, the license allows Iberdrola Energie Romania to trade energy on the platforms of local energy market operator OPCOM.

In 2009, Iberdrola opened an office in Romania’s capital city Bucharest and announced it would build several wind farms of 1,600 megawatts installed power.

Iberdrola is one of the companies part of the joint-venture building nuclear reactors 3 and 4 at the country’s sole nuclear power plant Cernavoda, of 720-MW power each.

Advances in Wind Energy Tech

The world’s largest wind turbine is now a 10MW, floating, 162 meters tall turbine. Its diameter is 145 meters.

Miltary stealth technology may help solve the radar interference issues of wind turbines.

Lancaster Wind Systems proved a feasible way to store wind energy by turning wind energy into hydraulic power, or pressure: inert nitrogen gas can be compressed in thousands of kilometres of unused pipelines creating a sort of giant pressure tank.

New laser wind sensors that helped the BMW Oracle team win the 2010 America Cup will enhance the turbine productivity.
