Energy Community opens new office in Chisinau to better serve Moldova
On the occasion of his address at the conference on Moldova’s energy sector opened by the President and Prime Minister of Moldova on 1 April, Director Lorkowski announced that the Energy Community is reinforcing its engagement in Moldova by opening an office Chisinau.
Director Lorkowski said: “The new office, which officially opened its doors today, confirms the Secretariat’s efforts to assist Moldova in modernizing its energy sector and making it more secure and resilient to current and future challenges in line with Energy Community rules and principles. It is important to keep the reform momentum going for the benefit of all Moldovan citizens.”
Welcoming the new office in Chisinau, Moldovan Prime Minister Natalia Gavrilița said: “As one of the most vulnerable countries in Europe when it comes to energy security, Moldova needs assistance from the Energy Community in overcoming the mounting energy challenges and advancing on energy security and the decarbonisation agenda. This is critical for our economic, social and political stability. The establishment of the office is a very important contribution to Moldova’s energy reform efforts and will strengthen our ability to cope with energy challenges recently deepened by the war in Ukraine and high energy prices.”
The Chisinau office, financed under the EU4Energy project, is staffed by a full-time senior energy expert, who will support the Moldovan authorities in the drafting of legislation, providing professional advice and offering other day-to-day support, under the direction of the Energy Community Secretariat.
