Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Romania Energy Report" report to their offering.

Romania is pursuing the restructuration of its energy sector under the IMF's rule, with the sale of minority stakes in Hidroelectrica, Nuclearelectrica, Romgaz and Transgaz by the end of 2012 as well as the renegotiation of power purchase agreements and the upcoming creation of new energy complex merger of coal mines and thermal power plants. In July 2011, the sale of a 9.84% stake in Petrom failed and currently the sale of 10% of Hidrolectrica is threatened by the company's insolvency.

Meanwhile, Europe is struggling to recover after the economical and financial crisis. Despite a 0.8% recovery in 2010, primary energy production fell again by 3% in 2011, in line with the 2.5% decrease in primary energy consumption. This noticeable drop in energy demand contributed to the 4.8% contraction in the energy consumption per unit of GDP (now 37% below the world average).


The Romania energy market report is a reliable source for understanding the key issues and dynamics shaping the Romanian energy industry. With timely, up-to-date energy industry data and demand forecasts, this report will help you identify and exploit challenges and opportunities in the Romanian energy sector. The report details the sub-sectors of the energy industry (Crude Oil, refined oil products, Natural Gas, Coal, Electricity and Renewable) in Romania.
