Energy Efficiency is one of the best solutions to consolidate the national energy security, to support the sustainable development of the economy and to improve the competitivity. (…) Energy Efficiency Improvement is a strategic objective of the national energy policies, and, in the same time, could contribute to the GHG emissions mitigation.“
Cristina Prună, Member of the Romanian Parliament - Vice-President Chamber of Deputies, Vice-President of the Commission for Industries and Services Romanian Parliament
Energy Efficiency projects will be financed in the following programming period through three national programmes: Regional operational programme, Just Transition Funds and National Programme for Recovery and Resilience.”
Marius Mihai Vasiliu, State Secretary, Ministry of Investments and European Projects
Building renovation and green solutions have a socio-economic and environmental impact. They bring huge benefits to cities, to communities, to us humans, and we seem to fail to fully understand them. I am convinced that adequately targeted financial resources and effective energy efficiency policies will have an incredible long-term effect on our quality of life and well-being. However, this can be achieved only through communication and change of attitudes at national, local, community level - something that requires resources and knowledge.
