Romania channels EU cash into more fossil gas distribution
Romania plans on using EU regional funds for the expansion of the gas distribution system, despite the existence of more sustainable alternatives and at odds with the energy transition.
Romania is the third-largest receiver of structural funds money (€29.2 billion, after Poland and Spain). It will also receive €1.9 billion from the Just Transition Fund and €13.8 billion from the Recovery and Resilience Facility.
