2019.03.29 Administrație publică Ana-Maria Veverița Print version


The 2020th is a turning point for the Republic of Moldova, being the year of full integration into the internal energy market of the European Union. In this respect, the country's legislation will be harmonized with the acquis communautaire, according to the Energy Strategy of the Republic of Moldova. Thus, the energy efficiency measures will contribute to reducing energy consumption by 20% by 2020 and using renewable energy sources closest to conventional energy costs.

Find out in the second issue (March edition) of the Newsletter of the project "Efficient public lighting in Calarasi-Firefly in the heart of forests", more about the energy efficiency measures to be implemented by the Republic of Moldova.

The project "Efficient public lighting in Calarasi-Firefly in the heart of forests", implemented by the Calarasi Town Hall in partnership with IDIS "Viitorul". The project is funded by the European Union through the European programme “Covenant of Mayors – Demonstration Projects (CoM-DeP)”, part of the EU4Energy initiative.


For more information, please contact the Press Officer of the project, Ana - Maria Veverita: or by phone (0 22) 221844.

The EU4Energy Initiative covers all EU support to improve energy supply, security and connectivity, as well as to promote energy efficiency and the use of renewables in the Eastern Partner countries Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Republic of Moldova and Ukraine. It does this by financing projects and programmes that help to reform energy markets and to reduce national energy dependence and consumption. Over the longer term, this makes energy supply more reliable, transparent and affordable, thus reducing energy poverty and energy bills for both citizens and the private sector. More information:
