Romania completed the process of transposing the EU Renewable Energy Directive in 2012. Romania achieved its national target of share of overall energy from renewable sources in 2015. In 2017 biofuel production is anticipated to increase slightly, while bioethanol production is expected to decline drastically. No changes are expected for fuel blending mandates in 2017, but the rate is set to grow in the case of bioethanol, from 4.5 percent in 2017 to 8 percent in 2018. Biofuel production capacity remains underutilized for both types of biofuels.
