Background

According to the article 3 of the consolidated Governance Regulation, by 30 June 2024, and subsequently by 1 January 2029 and every ten years thereafter, each Contracting Party shall notify to the Energy Community Secretariat an integrated national energy and climate plan. The integrated national energy and climate plan shall consist of the sections set out in paragraph 2 of the Article 3 and in Annex I of the Regulation. The first plan shall cover the period from 2025 to 2030, taking into account the longer term perspective. The subsequent plans shall cover the ten-year period immediately following the end of the period covered by the previous plan. NECP should lay down the pathway to achieve targets set for 2030 regarding the increase of renewable energy in overall energy consumption, increased energy efficiency and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Further, the NECPs should also include a perspective until 2050 in order to ensure consistency with long-term relevant policy objectives at EU, UNFCCC and Energy Community level.

Further, the Moldova’s LEDS 2030 was updated. It transposes into national policy planning framework the GHG emissions reduction targets assumed via updated NDC under the Paris Agreement. Draft updated LEDS 2030 establishes GHG emissions reduction targets for 7 sectors. Among others, for energy sector, it plans a 81% (unconditional scenario) 87% (conditional scenario) reduction of GHG emissions comparing with 1990. Currently, draft updated LEDS 2030 is subject of SEA procedure. After SEA Report is approved, draft updated LEDS 2030 will be promoted for approval by Government. 

During 2021 year, a study was conducted with the aim to ensure the coherence of the national climate and energy policy framework developed in the frame of Republic of Moldova’s commitments under UNFCCC and Energy Community Treaty. The necessity of this study arises from the fact that the GHG emissions reduction targets for the Energy Sector, established under NDC2/updated LEDS 2030 and those calculated under the STARS project, could potentially be different. The study identified the causes and formulate the recommendations to overcome this situation. Energy Community Secretariat and European Commission recommend that targets under these planning documents need to be aligned.
