PM Nicolae Ciuca: In two weeks I want a plan on how to start saving energy in the state institutions

Published on

Prime Minister Nicolae Ciuca on Wednesday asked the Minister of Energy, Virgil Popescu, to present to the Government, in two weeks’s time, a plan regarding the reduction of energy waste at the level of state institutions, according to Agerpres.

He recalled that the Executive adopted the modification of Ordinance 27 on energy measures and stated that measures must be taken at the governmental level to reduce the waste of energy.

The Minister of Energy, Virgil Popescu, showed that, at the meeting of the Council of Ministers of Energy from the EU states, he presented Romania’s point of view regarding the electricity market. „We support capping the price for natural gas and the decoupling of the price for natural gas from the price of electricity,” stated Popescu.

He specified that, regarding the saving of electricity, the European Commission came up with the proposal to exist, not voluntarily, but mandatory, during peak hours of consumption, the possibility of reducing electricity.

Virgil Popescu added that, at the respective meeting, he proposed a coordinated reduction of VAT.
