During January – November 2014, the Romania’s primary energy resources increased by 2.4 percent, while those of electric energy increased, as compared to the same period of previous year, by 8.6 percent. The main primary energy resources during this period, amounted to 29329.81 thousand tonnes oil equivalent (toe), increasing by 689.6 thousand toe as against the same period from the previous year, National Institute of Statistics (INS) data show.
Domestic production amounted to 20073.5 thousand toe, increasing by 0.6 percent as against the same period of previous year, while imports amounted to 9256.3 thousand toe, increasing by 6.6 percent.
During this period, electric energy resources amounted to 58201.9 million KWh, increasing by 4633.6 million KWh (+8.6 percent) as against the corresponding period of 2013. The increase of electric energy resources was mainly due to increased domestic production, of 4445.7 million KWh (+8.4 percent).
