NEWS OF THE DAY - OCTOBER 30
Prime Minister Victor Ponta says Romania needs electricity produced in thermal power plants to reach its goal of energy independence. Ponta said on Thursday in Hunedoara (northwest of Bucharest) that two years ago the Oltenia and Hunedoara complex energy units were on the brink of bankruptcy and the government made huge efforts to rescue these companies and keep them in the energy market. 'In 2012, both the Oltenia Energy Complex - which I know better because it's in the region I represent [as an MP] - and the Hunedoara Energy Complex were practically bankrupt; they were good to shut down. Well, since 2012 we made huge efforts - and we're continuing to - because we must save these thermal power producers. Romania has this huge advantage of having all the types of electricity - hydro, nuclear, renewable and thermal - and I'm not talking only about saving jobs, which of course is essential; I'm talking about our strategy of becoming energy independent; of course, for this we need the thermal power production,' Ponta declared. He pointed out that the steps taken by the government aim at giving a clear perspective to these energy complexes and to their technological overhaul, so as to result in competitive production costs.
