President Klaus Iohannis said that Romania aims to reach a total installed capacity of more than 8,000 MW (8 GW) of photovoltaic renewable energy production units by 2030, which would be more than a five-fold increase compared to the current situation.

″By 2030, Romania aims to install more than 8 Gigawatts of solar power capacity, representing 24 percent of gross final consumption of electricity from renewable sources. Romania's commitment to increase its installed solar energy capacity is fully aligned with the EU Solar Energy Strategy and will contribute to the implementation of the Paris Agreement,″ said President Klaus Iohannis.

″The signing of Romania's accession to the ISA is a historic moment for our country and reaffirms our commitment to actively contribute to protecting the environment and combating climate change through the development of sustainable solar energy," he added.
