Q2 2019 Meeting of National Market Policy Framework for Alternative Fuels in the Transport Sector and for the Installation of Relevant Infrastructure in Romania


Based on HG 87/2018 and L 34/2017 AVER participates on the National Market Policy Framework for Alternative Fuels in the Transport Sector and for the Installation of Relevant Infrastructure in Romania meetings.

Debates over chapter 3.3 policy measures to support the implementation of the national framework.

  • Identifying financing solutions for stationary aircraft infrastructure installation programs. Airport administrations in Romania with a number of aircraft movements greater than 50,000 aircraft / year will analyze the opportunity and need to install power supplies for use with stationary aircraft without the use of fuel-based fuel sources fossil
  • Establish a more efficient monitoring system for vehicles that are equipped with LPG installations after approval. Simultaneously, a more effective control regime and sanctions will be pursued to mitigate public safety risks
  • Assessing the Opportunity to include CNG and LNG Vehicles in the Program for Greenhouse Gas Emission Reduction in Transport by Promoting Clean and Energy-Efficient Road Transport Vehicles
  • Assessing the possibility of encouraging the purchase of vehicles, which can work best on the basis of E10 fuels, by freight and passenger transport operators
  • Establishing technical features on the definition and possible facilitation of the authorization process for hydrogen supply stations as well as on the process of authorizing the supply of this type of alternative fuel
  • Elaborate a normative system to establish obligations for public fleets’ fleets. The normative will track:
    – Establish a minimum number / percentage of alternative fuel vehicles
    – Establishing rules for joint procurement
  • Continue funding under the Greenhouse Gases Reduction Program in Transport by promoting clean and energy-efficient road transport vehicles in line with annual budget allocations and accessibility of alternative fuels technologies.

Debates over chapter 3.4 support for installation and production

  • Improve the methodology for replacing and recycling VE and VEH batteries so as to reduce the potential negative impact on the environment and public health.
  • An analysis of the possibility of allocating an annual budget to support units developing alternative fuel technologies, broken down by alternative fuel and mode of transport, as well as a thorough examination of any special needs regarding the use of these technologies by state institutions, accessing European funds and communicating the potential benefits to the environment and the economic viability of these technologies for the end-user

The European Battery Recycling Regulation implemented on L 66/2006 and approved in GD 1132/2008 includes industrial batteries, which means all types of Li-Ion batteries.
All operators who place on the market products with Li-Ion batteries / batteries must have authorization from the Ministry of the Environment.
In Romania, the economic activity of collecting automobile batteries is regulated. At the end of 2018, there was no regulatory target for industrial batteries.
The end-of-life vehicles directive regulates the vehicles with industrial batteries proposed for scrapping. The manufacturer assumes responsibility for organizing co-location points. L 53/2000 transposed in L 212/2015.
Establishing the collection network is a must for companies that put industrial batteries on the market. The list of collectors is on the ANPM website.
