Moldova’s Energy Efficiency Agency (AEE) approved the financing of six energy efficiency and renewable energy projects for a total budget of 1.4 million lei (287,600 euros).
Among the approved projects there is the implementation of the Smart City concept in the city of Nisporeni through the installation of two built-in benches with photovoltaic panels, with a power of 110 watts (W). Another renewable energy project will be carried out at the gymnasium-kindergarten in the Telița village, through the installation of photovoltaic panels, which will reduce the electricity consumption of the institution by about 60-80 per cent.
“I am glad to see that more and more communities in the country aim to implement projects in the field of energy efficiency and renewable energy sources,” said Sergiu Răilean, Minister of Economy and Infrastructure. “With such beautiful initiatives, we will be able to consolidate the country’s energy security and cope with climate change.”
Another project approved between the Faculty of Energy and Electrical Engineering from the Technical University of Moldova (TUM) and the Association of Energy Consumers aims to promote and implement smart metering systems throughout the country. The project involves the installation of more than 500 smart metering systems by the end of 2022.
