On 13 February, Energy Community experts and representatives of the Ministry of Economy and Infrastructure of Moldova met in Chisinau to set in motion technical assistance to support the Moldovan Government in the implementation of Law no 128/2014 on Energy Performance of Buildings. The support will consist of updating the minimum energy performance requirements for new buildings and those that undergo major renovations. Application of the new building requirements will result in the lowest energy costs during the estimated economic lifecycle of the building.
The assistance is part of the EU4Energy support for the country in fulfilling its commitments under the Energy Community Treaty, transposing the main provisions of Directive 2010/31/EU and builds on the gap analysis of the Energy Performance of Buildings Law in Moldova and the updated Energy Performance Calculation Methodology recently developed under the EU4Energy Governance project.
* 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.
