Transelectrica and The Diplomat Bucharest, the leading English language magazine in Romania, are organizing on Thursday October 4, 2012 9:00 AM at Crowne Plaza Hotel, Bucharest the first edition of the Romanian Photovoltaic Investment Forum.

As the PV energy sector in Romania has one of the strongest growth potential in Europe, with many traditional PV markets cutting financial incentives to levels that will make investments in solar hardly profitable. Romania is now seen by many analysts as the next target for starting PV projects, with the approved amendments to the Emergency Ordinance no. 88/2011 that modified Law no. 220/2008.

Join top executives from solar companies, analysts and investors, looking into entering the solar business in a one day event in which the leading companies in the sector will meet with energy market regulating authorities.
