The Moldovan Energy and Biomass Cluster and the Romanian Green Energy Innovative Biomass Cluster signed a Memorandum of Cooperation on 7 June during the celebrations of EU Sustainable Energy Week in the Moldovan capital of Chisinau. The agreement establishes the main areas of cooperation leading to the promotion of biomass use and climate change mitigation.

“The memorandum opens new doors for us in terms of implementing projects in the field of developing green energy,” said Lajos Vajda, President of the Romanian Green Energy Cluster.

The Moldovan Biomass Cluster was launched in 2017 with the support of the Moldova Energy and Biomass Project and has 27 members, including private companies, public authorities, research institutions, universities and associations active in the green energy sector.

The EU-funded and UNDP-implemented Energy and Biomass Project in Moldova is part of the EU4Energy Initiative and aims to contribute to the reliable, competitive and sustainable production of energy from biomass, which is the most viable and available source of renewable energy in the Republic of Moldova.

EU4Energy 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, the 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 long term, this makes energy supply more reliable, transparent and affordable, thus reducing energy poverty and energy bills for both citizens and the private sector.
