District heating in Bucharest

Romania Energy Center (ROEC) in partnership with the “Up to Us” association and Hans Seidel Foundation invite you join us for a debate about district heating in Bucharest and the situation of the city’s heat distribution company – RADET. The company has filed for bankruptcy in 2016 and has been run by a court appointed administrator (Rominsolv) ever since. In fact, both ELCEN (the Bucharest heat producer) and RADET (the heat distributor in Bucharest) are in bankruptcy procedures. To solve the problem, the Bucharest Municipality wanted to transfer the business of both companies (ELCEN and RADET) to a new company created from scratch – Bucharest Energy Municipal Company (Compania Municipală Energetica București). However, the Bucharest Tribunal has annulled the municipality’s decision to found Compania Municipală Energetica București in 2018. Our debate aims to generate a constructive discussion about the current state of affairs and actions necessary to restore district heating in Bucharest to proper functioning. The event will take place at Hotel Novotel in Bucharest on March 12, 2019, starting with 2 pm.
