Statement by RPIA President
“Romania has a significant potential for producing energy from solar/PV sources. This kind of technology could be an important part of the energy mixture Romania is aiming to achieve in the upcoming years. The level of irradiation in the south of Romania, which covers more than half of the country’s surface, is similar to the one encountered in countries with a tradition in developing solar/PV projects: Spain, Italy, Greece etc. What Romania offers comparing to other European states is not only similar weather conditions, but a more attractive support scheme, as well as economic stability, very skilled technical personnel and in general a friendly business environment. The main scope of RPIA is to be a reliable partner and a trusted guide in Romania for companies involved in the solar/PV industry. Our purpose is to Make the most of PV!“
