Under the EU4Energy technical assistance project, Energy Community Secretariat experts are drafting legal acts to transpose two Third Energy Package gas network codes into the national legal framework of Moldova. The working meeting with Moldovan stakeholders (National Energy Regulatory Agency of Moldova (ANRE), Moldovatransgaz, Moldovagaz) took place on 1 April in Chisinau.
Network codes are technical rules supporting the implementation of the Third Energy Package. Once adopted by ANRE, Moldova will have capacity allocation mechanism rules in place that will provide for harmonized auctions when grid operators sell access to pipelines and harmonised transmission tariff structures for gas.
As a Contracting Party to the Energy Community Treaty, Moldova has an obligation to transpose the two network codes by 29 June 2019.
* 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.
