“If in October 2022, the Republic of Moldova was 100% dependent on gas supplies from the Russian Federation, currently this indicator has decreased considerably.

On the other hand, recently, Veaceslav Moldovan, the administrator of ML Energy-Group, declared that renewable energy producers cannot sell it to the state operator Energocom, reports bani.md.
“We have 62 license holders, of which only 6 are active. Two are regulated, and four – are unregulated. Now, exports have been banned, which is logical for the alert situation in the energy sector. But at the same time, no one buys domestically produced electricity. It is a matter of bureaucracy that limits electricity sales to the state”, claims Moldovan
According to the energy strategy voted by the Government, the authorities want to reach a 30% share of renewable energy by 2030. It is about wind, photovoltaic, and biomass, which in total would accumulate 1.1 million MWh.
