Because of his placement, Romania is situated in the European B sunlight, which gives the country a major solar potential waiting to be tapped. With 210 sunny days a year, Romania is eligible for annual energy flow between 1000 and 1300 located kWh / sqm / year.
Radiation level in Romania is very good compared to other countries with temperate climate, anddifferences, depending on geographical area, are very small. Solar radiation in Romania reaches maximum values in June, 1.49 kWh / msq/zday, lows were recorded in February, 0.34 kWh /msq/day, wrote Green Report.
Romania is divided into three main areas of sunlight: the red, about 1650 kWh / sqm / year,corresponding to Oltenia, Wallachia, Moldavia and southern Dobrogea, yellow zone, 1300-1450kWh / sqm / year, including Carpathian and Carpathian regions of Wallachia , all of Transylvania,the middle and northern Moldova, Banat, and the blue, 1150-1300 kWh / sqm / year, mountainregions.
Despite the existing potential, solar energy is not fully exploited in 2010 being installed only 2MW.
