“The energy system worked flawlessly during this pandemic. The resilience of the system is solid. We have performance even in this critical situation. There were no major problems, the market worked. The rains, the floods, the extreme wind were special situations but we managed to get over the problems,” Niculae Havrilet, State Secretary, Ministry of Economy, Energy and the Business Environment said during the Energy CEO Forum 2020, organized by The Diplomat-Bucharest.
“Through the legislation issued during the pandemic, we aimed to reduce the negative effects for all market participants, especially for vulnerable institutions such as hospitals. Problems still exist, but we will look for solutions to eliminate negative market behavior. Through adequate legislation, we will be able to eliminate the unfavorable elements that are reflected in the consolidated state budget.”
