EU is investing 13 million euros to help Moldova overcome the energy crisis
The European Union (EU) is investing 13 million euros to help the Republic of Moldova overcome the energy crisis and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the Ministry of Energy announces.
The program "Addressing the impact of the energy crisis in the Republic of Moldova", implemented by UNDP, supported the Republic of Moldova in overcoming the energy crisis of the last two years by creating a compensation system for 800,000 energy vulnerable families.
According to the Ministry of Energy, in the long term, the Program supported the transposition of the most important European directives in the energy field and implemented pilot programs to reduce energy consumption.
Later, they will be taken over by the Agency for Energy Efficiency.
At the same time, photovoltaic panels with a total capacity of 1 MW were installed, which will generate the necessary energy for 5 district hospitals in: Florești, Nisporeni, Ștefan Vodă, Cahul and Călărași. They will produce about 1.2 GWh of green electricity annually and will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 585 tons of CO2eq annually.
Thus, the Program will contribute to the objective of the Republic of Moldova to decarbonize the energy sector before the year 2050.
