Energy Efficiency Programme

industry s



 Energy Efficiency (EE) means to be focused to the output as performance, service, goods or energy as result of energy used for this purpose. It is the term as defined in Directive 2001/77/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council as of September 27, 2001 and also in the Law on Energy Efficiency Nr.142 dated 07.02.2010 of Republic of Moldova. The measures are intended to reduce energy intensity in the national economy, and to decrease the negative effect of the energy sector on the environment. So the measures of energy efficiency improvements are carried out by energy distributors, distribution system operators, energy suppliers and end users of all commercially available forms of energy, including electricity, natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas, any fuel used for heating and cooling, coal and lignite, peat and fuel. Energy is a controllable resource! Using it efficiently helps reducing bills, increasing profits and mitigating environmental impact.

In the light of the approved law Nr.142 the main principles of the state policy on energy efficiency are:

  •     support improvements, programs, equipments and monitoring compliance and standards;
  •     promotion  of private initiatives and to develop energy services;
  •     establishing the state program on monitoring the evolution of the overall energy consumptions per economy;
  •     cooperation between producers, carriers, distributors, suppliers and users of energy;
  •     cooperation with other countries in order to promote know-how technologies, implement scientific achievements and advanced expertise in energy efficiency;
  •     confirmation information related to energy efficiency activities;
  •     decision makers on identification and implementing energy consumption efficiency measures;
  •    involving of civil society on energy efficiency improvement measures.  

"The Directive 2006 / 32 / EC on energy end-use and energy services lays down the obligation to adopt and achieve the objective of overall national indicative energy savings target of 9% for the ninth year of application of the Directive, to be reached by services neregetice and other energy efficiency improvement measures . countries that implement this Directive establishes cost-effective , practicable and reasonable measures designed to help achieve that goal ( Article 4 ( 1) of Directive 2006/32 / EC : general purpose ) "

The Law Nr.142 on Energy Efficiency is following by changes in state administration activity. By now the Government is responsible for policy and coordination by:
  •     establishing the main directions of the state's policy on energy efficiency;
  •     approving national programs and national action plans on energy efficiency;
  •     developing and implementing of economic and financial mechanisms to achieve energy savings;
  •     maintaining if the structure and main direction of activities of the public authority on energy efficiency.

The Moldavian Energy Efficiency Agency is at the forefront in working with national and international partner institutions and organizations to strengthen the national framework for energy efficiency and accelerate the achievement of reduced energy costs, improved competitiveness and increased consumer welfare. The practical aspect of energy efficiency targets is to reduce energy consumption through increased efficiency and conservation reduces energy costs for consumers without degrading the quality of the final services or products and it very often results in tangible monetary savings that can be used for other purposes. In the case of industry, energy efficiency reduces exposure to energy price volatility, it improves productivity and competitiveness. In the case of household, it frees money for other more productive and beneficial uses.

The importance of Energy Efficiency represents a key element of a country's energy security strategy since it is very often the most cost-effective measures to help countries with limited and slowly growing energy supply capacity to meet their rapidly increasing energy demand. Very often it is less expensive to improve efficiency of energy consumption rather than building new power generating plants. For energy importing countries, like the Republic of Moldova, increased efficiency leads to reduced dependency on imports and can have significant financial benefits on national budgets.

The Republic of Moldova has substantial economic potential for energy efficiency improvements in all sectors of its economy: residential, industry, agriculture and public sector. Energy efficient lighting bulbs and appliances, energy efficient design and materials (insulation, windows, etc.) for buildings, energy management, energy system and production process optimization, automation and information technologies are only some examples of energy efficiency best-practices and technologies that can be and are being promoted and implemented in the Republic of Moldova.
