Today, the Energy Community Secretariat published its Opinion 2/23 of 12 May 2023 on the unbundling of the Moldovan electricity TSO Moldelectrica. In its Opinion the Secretariat raises concerns about potential conflicts of interest between persons and institutions engaged in transmission activities, on the one hand, and persons and institutions engaged in supply and generation activities, on the other. To address this, the Secretariat requests ANRE to introduce a number of additional safeguards before issuing the Final Decision. Among others, the Secretariat requests that a supervisory board with a majority of independent members is established in Moldelectrica after the expiry of the current members’ mandates.
As required under Article 10 of Directive 2009/72/EC and Article 3 of Regulation (EC) 714/2009, ANRE shall take the utmost account of the Secretariat’s Opinion when adopting its final certification decision.
