The Romanian power market is currently entering a new phase of development. The 2032 coal exit signals the government’s long term decarbonisation ambitions, with the new CfD scheme currently under development solidifying this position. In the meantime, the last sector of the power market (households) is now becoming liberalised, as the Romanian market aligns more with the EU model. All of these developments are expected to bring along major investments in the power market as a whole but particularly in renewables.
