The energy system is currently going through the most profound changes of the last decades, and the electricity market is at the center of this process of change. The common goal of decarbonising the energy system creates new opportunities and challenges for market participants. At the same time, technological advances allow new forms of user participation and cross-border cooperation.

Regulation (EU) 2019/943 and Directive (EU) 2019/944 establish rules to ensure the functioning of the internal market in electricity and include certain requirements related to the development of renewable energy and environmental policy, in particular specific rules for certain types of installations for the production of renewable electricity, as well as a threshold for CO2 emissions for the new generation capacity.

The implementation of the provisions of Regulation (EU) 2019/943 and Directive (EU) 2019/944 will be essential for the development of energy systems in Romania.
