Moldova: National Programme to Promote Solar Thermal Installations

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on October 22, 2015

Solar thermal technology will be part of the second phase of the Moldova Energy and Biomass Project. The project aims at a more secure, competitive and sustainable energy production in the Republic of Moldova by promoting renewable heating systems. It is planned to run between January 2015 and November 2017, offering a budget of EUR 9.4 million funded by the European Union. One of the project’s goals is to supply municipal institutions with at least 80 heating systems primarily burning biomass briquettes and pellets from agricultural waste. Up to 21 of the chosen institutions are said to receive a pilot heating system combining solar thermal and a biomass boiler. During the first phase of the Moldova Energy and Biomass Project (2011-2014), the programme helped to install 141 biomass-based heating systems at schools, nurseries and community centres without additional solar heating.
