Moldova: 230MW renewables auction on a “first come, first served” basis
The Moldovan authorities plan to select projects in a new 230MW renewables auction on a “first come, first served” basis. Installations will be assigned a 15-year fixed tariff. The authority assigned a quota of 70MW for PV, of which 50MW will be allocated for projects on buildings, with 20MW to be set aside for ground-mounted facilities. Another 15 MW will be devoted to wind power, 100MW to cogeneration units based on biogas, 30MW to cogeneration units based on direct fuel combustion, and 5 MW to hydropower plants.
State-owned energy distributor Energocom will be the sole buyer of the clean electricity from the planned projects.
