Upcoming INOGATE activities in Moldova
The INOGATE Programme continues to support the energy dialogue with Moldova within the context of the regional energy cooperation between the INOGATE countries and the European Union.
Increased attention is given to sustainable energy as the energy source of the future. This includes increasing investments to this sector by, for example, undertaking geospatial mapping of energy efficiency/renewable energy sources and providing a visual tool to support an investment dialogue between policy makers, potential investors and the renewable energy supply chain.
Support continues to initiatives such as the Covenant of Mayors, whereby cities are committing themselves to reduce CO2 emissions by 20% through the implementation of Sustainable Energy Action Plans. Twenty one Moldovan cities (Anenii Noi, Beltsy, Budeşti, Calarasi, Cantemir, Cimişlia, Codru, Comrat, Copceac, Drochia, Edinet, Festelita, Ocnita, Orhei, Primaria Costesti, Recea, Soroca, Taraclia, Telenești, Ungheni, Vadul lui Voda) have already signed up to this ambitious initiative.
Tariffs are a key issue in energy market reforms and INOGATE will deliver a study providing an overview of tariffs setting methodologies in the Partner Countries and recommending appropriate revisions to tariffs setting methodologies, in line with the relevant EU best practices.
INOGATE continues to support energy supply security by providing a comprehensive study on state of the art technologies for the reduction of gas losses. Other key areas of continued INOGATE support include the development of the energy statistics system and the establishment of a technical committee on electricity for the sustainable and effective harmonisation of specific standards.
The INOGATE Technical Secretariat (ITS) activities are being implemented at national level with ITS expert technical assistance provided in the form of capacity and institutional building, and at regional level where the actions include conferences, study tours, national meetings, as well as networking opportunities.
As of 2010, Moldova is a “Contracting party” to the Energy Community. INOGATE will continue to provide technical assistance to Moldova so that it can adopt and put into practice the EU rules on energy, have closer ties with the EU's single market, attract investment and increase the financial stability of its energy sector.
The INOGATE Technical Secretariat and Moldova jointly defined the activities for implementation in the period of 2015-2016 and agreed them with the European Commission. This country work plan can be found here.
