On 27 June, the National Energy Regulatory Agency of Moldova (ANRE) was presented with the final draft Methodology for calculation, approval and application of tariffs for the Electricity Market Operator in Moldova, developed under the EU4Energy project.
The techncial assistance included a review of the current status of the Moldovan electricity market and its regulatory and legislative framework and the identification of the most suitable financing and tariff models for the Moldovan electricity market.
Both the financing and tariff models were thoroughly reviewed and scrutinized through an open consultation process with the representatives of the working group led by ANRE and the Energy Community Secretariat. The next steps are for the the National Energy Regulatory Agency to adopt the proposed methodology that will ensure compliance with Moldova’s committments under the Energy Community Treaty.
* The EU4Energy Initiative covers all EU support to improve energy supply, security and connectivity, as well as to promote energy efficiency and the use of renewables in the Eastern Partner countries Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. It does this by financing projects and programmes that help to reform energy markets and to reduce national energy dependence and consumption. Over the longer term, this makes energy supply more reliable, transparent and affordable, thus reducing energy poverty and energy bills for both citizens and the private sector.
