Minister of Energy, Virgil Popescu: „Successive transactions with electricity or natural gas, sanctioned with 5% of turnover”

Published on

The Minister of Energy, Virgil Popescu, declared on Thursday, at the end of the government meeting, in which the Ordinance amending and supplementing OUG 27/2022 was approved, that successive energy transactions „will be harshly sanctioned”, the National Energy Regulatory Authority (ANRE) being able to apply a fine of 5% of turnover, according to Agerpres.

„Successive transactions are discouraged. Looking at the market – I have said this before – the famous transfer of electricity from one supplier to another, from one trader to another and reaches the supplier in order to artificially increase the price of electricity or natural gas, this time it will be very harshly sanctioned, because it is not normal to have this type of behavior in the market, and practically it will be sanctioned with 5% of the turnover, a fine that ANRE now has at its disposal to be able to apply,” Virgil Popescu said.
