The purpose of the two expert missions to Moldova was to develop certain documents aligned with the EU best practices, such as:
Moldova has been a full member of the Energy Community since May 2010 and the adoption of the EU Directive 2006/32/EC on energy end-use efficiency and energy services is one of the country’s obligations under the Energy Community Treaty. Energy Performance Contracting is one of the financial instruments for energy savings envisaged in this Directive and should therefore be transposed into Moldovan legislation.
Taking into account that the facilitation of energy services is a part of the Energy Community (EnC) requirements, the results of this assignment will be in the scope of interest to other INOGATE Paertner Countries, namely Ukraine, Georgia and Armenia. Ukraine became a full member of the EnC in 2011, but has not yet approved secondary legislation on EnPC. Georgia submitted an application for a full membership in 2013 and started learning other EnC countries’ experience in implementation of the EE Acquis. Armenia is an observer to the EnC.
