Romania: A Subsidy Scheme and its Implementation Problems

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on August 28, 2012

Romania is the only major country in Europe without a commercial manufacturer of solar flat plate collectors. The photo, however, shows a small, non-commercial collector manufacturing unit in Timişoara, in the west of Romania. It produces collectors for some solar water heating systems of local Caritas institutions and is supported by the German Urbis Foundation. The reason why all other neighbouring countries - Serbia, Bulgaria, Hungary and Ukraine – have already seen a number of component manufacturers being established, but Romania has not, can be found in the inconsistency of the country’s support policy and the high bureaucratic hurdles when it comes to the programme itself. After applications are approved, there are still contracts to be signed and further papers to be handed in after the installation before applicants can receive their money.
