The map of energy production and consumption in Romania is changing, considers Ovidiu Demetrescu, General Manager Hidro Tarnița SA. “For ensuring energy security, we must anticipate today how the production sector will be for at least seven years from now, and foresee the next 20-30 years afterwards”, Ovidiu Demetrescu said for energynomics.ro, the organizer of the Energy Strategy Summit to be held in Bușteni (Prahova), on June 4, 2015. “We must identify Romania’s strategic interests, and should assume the leadership role in Romanian projects. Tarniţa hydropower plant is an investment in Romania’s energy security and a strategic objective for the backbone of the Romanian economy. By the time this project will be delivered, the power generation map of Romania will look very different than it does today. In an ever-changing energy context, energy security is the cornerstone for economic prosperity. We must anticipate today how the production sector will be for at least 30 years. Hydro Tarniţa project is the core for energy security as it provides storage and versatility so much needed  for an energy system in deep transformation”, Ovidiu Demetrescu also said.
