Moldova takes over Energy Community Presidency

7 January 2019

Moldova took over the rotating presidency of the Energy Community on 1 January 2019. Moldova’s top priority during the presidency will be finalizing the discussion and finally adopting amendments to the Treaty establishing the Energy Community. The discussion on Treaty amendments is going on already for the last three years and it is high time to finish it before EU parliamentary elections. Amendments are necessary to ensure that the Energy Community can fulfil its objectives and live up to the requirements of a single energy market. 

During its presidency, Moldova will also put emphasis on ensuring a more consistent policy on sustainable energy production and consumption. A key priority for 2019 is the adoption of the 2030 targets for renewable energy, energy efficiency and greenhouse gas emissions reduction in the Energy Community through transposition of the recent EU Clean Energy Package for the Energy Community Contracting Parties as well.
