Danish renewables developer European Energy A/S is developing 935 MW of solar and wind projects in Romania, seeking to potentially generate electricity for Power-to-X facilities for the production of green hydrogen and e-methanol.
The Copenhagen-based company said on Monday its Romanian portfolio consists of nine solar photovoltaic (PV) projects totalling 810 MW and a 125-MW wind farm scheme. The first solar project in the bundle has reached shovel-ready status and construction is due to begin next year, while grid connection is in place for another PV scheme of 125 MW.
In line with its expansion plans for the Romanian market, European Energy last month opened an office in Bucharest. Its ambition is to “become one of the significant market players” in the country. Apart from its onshore projects, it has also set sights on the local offshore wind and Power-to-X market, it noted.
“Renewable energy is getting to the stage where it can be used for more and more purposes in the coming decade,” said Ioannis Kalapodas, Head of Office European Energy Romania.
