2018 - 2021
The project works towards increasing the access of the Moldovan citizens to improved public services in the field of Water Supply and Sanitation and Energy Efficiency in public buildings. As such, the project will construct and put into service 10 Water Supply and Sanitation systems, as well as implement 8Energy Efficiency projects inschools throughout the country.
Energy and Biomass Project is a two-phase project with the mission to contribute to the reliable, competitive and sustainable production of energy from biomass, which is the most viable and available source of renewable energy in the Republic of Moldova. Among the main beneficiaries of the Energy and Biomass Project are: 190 schools, kindergartens and community centers in all the districts across the country.
German Development Cooperation through GIZ in partnership with the Ministry of Agriculture, Regional Development and Environment
2014 - 2015
Construction of energy efficiency measures of the building envelope incl. roof, installation of ventilation and air-conditioning system, installation of an efficient heating system, installation of an efficient power distribution system and LED lighting and complementary measures (rain water management, pavement of internal court, toilets refurbishment, incl. for persons with disabilities, creation of entrance for persons with disabilities incl. access to the school area).
The aim of the project is to rehabilitate the existing internal power transmission network of Moldelectrica, the state owned Moldovan transmission system operator, in order to strengthen regional interconnections and to develop trade in regional electricity.
Moldova's high dependency on external sources of energy together with energy being wasted at the end-user level and the poor condition of energy infrastructure result in high carbon intensity and costs which could be reduced by improving energy efficiency practices and by promoting the use of renewable energy sources (especially biomass from agriculture). MoSEFF offers long-term finance to local participating banks which then on-lend these funds to their clients for individual projects designed to cut energy consumption and C02 emissions as well as to improve energy use in industries, SMEs, agribusiness and commercial buildings.
The main project’s objective is to overcome barriers in the use of solar and biomass energy production technologies by providing examples of best practice as a viable alternative to gas and coal and as a sustainable way of Environment Protection and addressing energy supply problems in rural communities.
