Romania exported over January – May 27 percent more electricity compared to the same period last year and imported almost 26 percent more.
The Romanian Energy Regulatory Authority (ANRE) shows, according to Mediafax, that in the first five months of this year Romania exported 4.5 TWh of energy. Energy exports in the period January – May 2014 amounted to 3.5 TWh.
Energy export in the first five months is equivalent to the annual need of two of the biggest energy consumers in Romania, Alro Slatina (3 TWh per year) and ArcelorMittal Galati (1.5 TWh).
“Overall, the import-export balance rose from 2.2 to 2.8 TWh for export,” according to ANRE. The largest volumes exported, of over 1 TWh, were recorded in January and April, while the largest imports were registered in January and May.
