The Energy Community Secretariat said on Friday (16 February) that Moldova’s National Agency for Energy Regulation (ANRE) approval of a study on the functioning of the national electricity wholesale market marks a “significant advancement” in the country’s power sector reforms. 

On 9 February, ANRE approved its first comprehensive study on the functioning of Moldova’s national electricity wholesale market. Supported by the EU4Energy Governance project and conducted by the Energy Community Secretariat’s experts in close collaboration with ANRE, it marks a “significant advancement” in Moldova’s electricity sector reforms and its alignment with EU standards for further integration into the EU’s internal electricity market, the Energy Community Secretariat stated in a press release.

The study provided an in-depth analysis of Moldova’s wholesale electricity market, dedicated to facilitating the implementation of key reforms outlined in the Electricity Integration Package and ensuring efficient market operation.

Alongside the analysis, the study included a detailed roadmap and recommendations for further development of Moldova’s wholesale electricity market. As noted by the Energy Community Secretariat, these recommendations served as the foundation for the Moldova-Energy Community-European Commission Joint Roadmap endorsed during the 5th EU-MD High-Level Energy Dialogue on 2 February in Chisinau.

The EU4Energy Governance project provides aid to Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine for their clean energy transition and decarbonisation policies. The project is managed and implemented from a budget of nearly 1.9 million euros by the Energy Community Secretariat via a dedicated unit specially assigned for this task.
