The National Agency for Energy Regulation of the Republic of Moldova (ANRE) has approved its first comprehensive study on the functioning of Moldova's national electricity wholesale market. Supported by the #EU4Energy Governance Project and conducted by the Secretariat’s experts in close collaboration with ANRE, it marks a significant advancement in Moldova's electricity sector reforms and its alignment with EU standards for further integration into the EU’s internal electricity market.

The study provides an in-depth analysis of Moldova's wholesale electricity market, dedicated to facilitating the implementation of key reforms outlined in the Electricity Integration Package and ensuring efficient market operation. Drawing upon EU best practices, the study aims to enhance the regulatory framework and foster a competitive, transparent, and fair market environment.

Alongside the analysis, the study includes a detailed roadmap and recommendations for further development of Moldova's wholesale electricity market. Crucially, these recommendations served as the foundation for the Moldova-Energy Community-European Commission Joint Roadmap endorsed during the 5th EU-MD High-Level Energy Dialogue on February 2nd in Chisinau.

Funded by the European Union, the EU4Energy Governance Project is a collaborative effort between the Energy Community Secretariat, the Council of European Energy Regulators, and the International Energy Agency.
