Moldovan energy regulator ANRE has launched an auction to deploy 230MW of large-scale renewable energy projects.
The authority assigned a quota of 70MW for PV, of which 50MW will be allocated for projects on buildings, with 20MW to be set aside for ground-mounted facilities. Another 15 MW will be devoted to wind power, 100MW to cogeneration units based on biogas, 30MW to cogeneration units based on direct fuel combustion, and 5 MW to hydropower plants.
The authorities will select projects on a “first come, first served” basis. They will be assigned a 15-year fixed tariff. State-owned energy distributor Energocom will be the sole buyer of the clean electricity. Developers of solar projects can to submit their project proposals from April 15.
Moldova relies heavily on electricity imported from Ukraine and the breakaway Moldovan state of Transnistria. The nation had just 5 MW of installed solar capacity at the end of 2020, according to International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) statistics.

How could be an auction if the principle applied is “first come, first served”. So, is not an auction, the procedure is named “confirmation of the eligible producer”. And is not for large-scale renewable projects but in particular for wind and solar is for small projects.
Unfortunately , the investors and developers still waiting when the Government will launch the auction for large-scale projects.
