ABSTRACT

The energy sector, among others, is one of the strategic sectors for any country regardless the degree of development. Being one of the most dynamic sectors due to the exponential need for energy, in most cases is unfriendly for the environment due to the conventional methods of extraction that are more affordable than those unconventional. The Romanian energy sector is no exception. In these conditions, the main objective of this paper is to evaluate the renewable energy potential of the Romania territory, namely the wind power density for the near future interval. More precisely, by using data coming from the Regional Climate Models (RCMs) provided by EURO-CORDEX, we can evaluate the evolution of the wind pattern. In this study are used wind fields simulated under two future emission scenarios, respectively RCP4.5 and RCP8.5. The data cover a 30-year interval (01 January 2021 to 31 December 2050) and have a spatial resolution of 0.11 degrees. Finally, by analyzing the zonal (u) and the meridional (v) wind velocity at 10-meter height (u10) the results presented in this paper will provide a comprehensive picture regarding the near future projection of the wind power potential for the Romania territory. Some climatic trends can be also assessed that can be used for future investments.
