  The Energy Ministry launched on Monday the renewables Contracts for Difference (CfD) scheme, a financial instrument designed to stimulate the domestic production of green energy.Early this month, the European Commission approved a EUR 3 billion (RON 15.22 billion) Romanian scheme to support onshore wind and solar photovoltaic energy facilities, in order to foster the transition to a net-zero economy, as per the Green Deal Industrial Plan.According to Energy Minister Sebastian Burduja, the contracts for difference will contribute to the achievement of Romania's target of installing 10 GW of renewable energy by 2030, as set forth in the Integrated National Energy and Climate Change Plan.In order to fulfill its commitments for 2030, the government of Romania, through the Energy Ministry, implements a Contracts for Difference support scheme aimed at encouraging priority investments in the low emission power generation technologies needed by the Romanian energy sector, mentions an informative note for bidders for renewables CfDs published by the Energy Ministry.The objective of the CfD scheme is to support Romania in achieving its decarbonisation targets, while maintaining the security of its power supply. The duration of support through the CfD scheme will be of maximum 15 years from the date of payment.Contracts for Difference will be awarded to eligible producers through a competitive bidding process run by Transelectrica SA. The CfDs will be signed by the Romanian gas and electricity market operator (OPCOM) from Romania, as counterparty to the CfD contracts.
