Who we are

The Energy Policy Group (EPG) is a Bucharest-based non-profit, independent think-tank specializing in energy and climate policy, market analytics and energy strategy, grounded in February 2014. EPG’s regional focus is Eastern Europe and the Black Sea Basin. Its analyses, though, are informed by wider trends and processes at global and EU levels.

Clean #hydrogen plays an important role in the EU’s efforts of reducing greenhouse gas #GHG and becoming climate neutral by #2050. In response to the EU Hydrogen Strategy, Romania drafted its own strategic document. The draft National Hydrogen Strategy, currently in final adoption stages, estimates a need for investments worth €4.8 billion to produce 152,900 tonnes per year of renewable hydrogen by 2030. Nonetheless, the public discourse in Romania is still flooded with faulty narratives on the future of hydrogen. One example is the doubtful expectation that hydrogen can either replace the use of natural gas in most current uses, therefore providing a lifeline for the continued use of fossil fuels throughout the following decades.

Projects

In our projects, EPG has taken an open, firm and consequent stance in favour of the clean energy transition, advocating for a coal-exit strategy in Romania, for regulations favourable to energy efficiency, digitalization and prosumers, as well as for smart energy-climate planning, aligned with the EU policies and long-term goals.
