USA and the United Kingdom, Investments in Higher Education in the Republic of Moldova

The Laboratories of the Faculty of Power Engineering and Electrical Engineering at the Technical University of Moldova (UTM) have been equipped with modern equipment worth $542,000, with the support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Embassy of the United Kingdom in Chisinau, through the “Energy Security of the Republic of Moldova” (MESA) project.

The equipment, unique in the Republic of Moldova, will be used to establish one of the most modern laboratories for power engineering.

These learning spaces will provide young engineers with a unique opportunity to develop practical skills in key areas, such as renewable energy, electric energy storage, and electric transportation.


The purpose of the donation is to facilitate UTM students’ access to innovative training technologies. They will be able to learn about energy generation processes from renewable sources and the storage of energy in the form of hydrogen. Additionally, students will study the basics of the operation of power installations used for the production, transportation, and utilization of energy in various sectors of the economy.

A separate laboratory has been equipped for the study of electromobility, where students will learn about the processes underlying the operation of hybrid and electric vehicles, as well as battery charging stations.

It should be noted that USAID will invest at least $60 million over the next four years through the “Energy Security of the Republic of Moldova” project to strengthen and diversify the energy sector.
