Electricity Producer - Renewable sources

Renewable energy sources

Non-renewable energy sources include nuclear power, but also energy generated by burning fossil fuels (oil, coal and natural gas). These resources are limited to the existence to the respective deposits and today cover 80% of energy consumption. In contrast, renewable energy is considered to be from sources that regenerates by itself in a short time or are virtually inexhaustible sources. The term renewable energy refers to energy forms produced by energetic transfer of energy arising from renewable natural processes.
Currently, renewable energy sources are harnessed unequally, but there is a certain and practical trend (through global energy policies and strategies, national or European) that shows there are massive, emphatic investments in this energy branch.

Among renewable energy resources are:

wind power
solar energy
biomass energy

Solar energy potential in Romania

Solar radiation and photovoltaic energy potential in Romania
information source:solarGIS, GeoModelSolar, 2011
The country’s solar energy potential is of 1200 GWh (1,2 TWh) per year.
Used at its highest level, our country’s solar potential could provide for 50% of the warm water supply for homes or 15% of the thermal energy for daily use.
The solar flux measured in our country varies between 1000 and 1600 kWh/m2/year.
Our country benefits from a medium of 210 sunny days per year.

Romania has an amazing solar power potential due to the high level of solar irradiation, higher than in the other Western European countries with tradition in the field of renewable energies. There are areas in which the annual solar energy flux reaches 1450-1600 kWh/m2/year.
