EU4Energy supports Moldova in establishing the day-ahead electricity market
On 27 September, representatives of the Ministry of Regional Development and Infrastructure, the National Agency for Energy Regulation, Moldelectrica and Energocom (as acting Central Electricity Buyer), together with the EU Delegation to Moldova and Energy Community Secretariat experts, discussed the implementation of the day-ahead market (DAM) in Moldova, supported by the EU4Energy Governance Project. The establishment of the DAM is a crucial step to develop the country’s electricity market in compliance with Moldova’s obligations within the framework of the Moldova–European Union Association Agreement and the Energy Community Treaty, especially in the context of early synchronization with ENTSO-E and enabling deeper cooperation with Ukraine.
During the meeting, participants discussed the state of play of the Moldavan electricity market, which is in an incipient phase of development, and possible implementation options (including coupling) and agreed on the next steps to be covered by the EU4Energy technical assistance project. The technical assistance will also provide proposals for the institutional setup of the DAM and assess possible models for its organization and operation. An Action Plan with terms of reference and responsible actors will be developed in cooperation with Moldovan stakeholders.
