A Romanian scheme to support the construction and/or upgrade of district heating systems, based exclusively on Renewable Energy Sources in Romania has been given the green light by the European Commission. “This €150 million Romanian scheme will support investments to support the construction or upgrade of district heating systems,” Commission Executive Vice-President for Competition Policy Margrethe Vestager said, noting that it will foster

the switch from fossil fuel energy production to heat generation based on renewable resources, in line with the objectives of the Green Deal. “This measure has been made possible also thanks to the European Green Deal’s Investment Plan. In order to unlock the potential of district heating to contribute to the transition to a climate neutral economy, the Plan has given Member States more flexibility when it comes to granting support for district heating generation, in line with EU State aid rules,” Vestager added.
