Supporting renewables in Moldova: Cornesti village kindergarten switches to green energy thanks to EU4Energy project

February 9, 2018

Ninety children at a kindergarten in the village of Cornesti, Moldova, are being kept warm in winter thanks to the use of renewable energy. The kindergarten switched from natural gas to solar and biomass energy thanks to the EU-funded and UNDP-implemented Energy and Biomass Project in Moldova.

The biofuel is locally produced by a small enterprise. This helps the kindergarten to not only save money on bills, but also be environmentally friendly.

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.
