Moldova's energy regulator said it launched a process that will result in the allocation of quotas for 235 MW of electricity from renewable sources at fixed tariffs
The process will open on April 1 for applicants with projects related to non-intermittent renewables such as biomass, biogas, synthesis gas and hydropower, while wind and solar projects will be allowed to enter from April 8 and April 15, respectively, the National Agency for Energy Regulation, ANRE, said in a notice on its website on Wednesday.
The agency will be looking to grant the eligible status to producers within the following quotas: 15 MW of wind, including 3 MW of small turbines; 70 MW of solar, including 50 MW of rooftop projects on buildings; up to 100 MW of biogas-based cogeneration plants; 15 MW of syngas; 30 MW of cogeneration plants using direct combustion; and 5 MW of hydropower.
The table below shows the ceiling prices for each renewable energy source, as approved by ANRE on February 25, 2022. The prices are shown in Moldovan leu per kWh.
