The Romanian National Institute for Research and Development of Isotopic and Molecular Technologies (INCDTIM) Cluj-Napoca, in partnership with the Cluj Innovation Park, is conducting a public tender procedure for construction of the first mixed experimental science park in the northwest of Romania, the Innovative Cluster for Advanced Pilot Technologies in Alternative Energies – CITAT-E, a project financed with EU cohesion policy funds. The project was announced during the European Week of Regions and Cities 2020 (12-15 October 2020), reports the Romania Journal.The photovoltaic and wind park, with a total installed capacity of at least 1,000 kW, will be located in the Cluj Innovation Park, in the Dealul Lomb area of Cluj. It will test the energy efficiency of photovoltaic panels and modern wind energy installations in real conditions and encourage decentralised consumption of energy from renewable sources. The deadline for completion of the park is 31 August 2021, added the Romania Journal.
The green energy produced will be consumed experimentally by the Cluj Innovation Park, and the results obtained will be used to configure a consumption behaviour specific to this area that can be replicated at national level.
The total budget for the project is RON 13.097 million (EUR 2.75 million) and it is co-financed by the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), concluded the Romania Journal.
