ABSTRACT
Getting energy from alternative sources is for EU Members including Romania, a fundamental objective intended for reducing dependence from traditional energy sources in the context of increasing degree of instability of oil and gas classical suppliers. In this context, the integration into Community Economic Area requires specific objectives in this respect from Romania in order to achieve the 20-20-20 Plan. This paper makes a brief analysis of economic and social implications of bioenergy production, particularly the impact of biodiesel on the European economy in general and particularly on the Romanian one.
