Assessment of Solar PV Power Generation Potential in Centre Development Region of Romania

Tihamér-Tibor Sebestyén
Abstract—The Centre Development Region of Romania could be considered an underdeveloped region in terms of local electricity production. In the region the local electricity generation is not able to supply the regional energy consumption, furthermore two of six counties have no electricity generation. On the periphery areas of region still existing 69 villages without electricity and 245 villages are partially electrified. The Rural Development Programme for Romaina includes the rural electrification using renewable energy resources. However PV investments started to develop in the last years. This paper presents an assessment of the PV electricity generation potential and the already existing PV projects. Considering the geographical, climate, social and technical factors, the technical potential of PV electricity generation has been also estimated using different types of approaches. This paper presents an assessment of the PV electricity generation potential in CDR of Romania and estimates the existing opportunities for PV projects and clearly demonstrate the necessity of investment in solar PV projects.

Index Terms—Solar energy potential, PV electricity generation.
