The public institutions are among the main beneficiaries of the Energy and Biomass Project Moldova for a couple of reasons. First of all, schools, kindergartens, healthcare facilities or community centers every day host thousands of people who benefit from increased thermal comfort and better working conditions. Finally, the wider use of solid biomass encourages local fuel producers and contributes to the country’s energy independence. Last but not least, the government should be a role model and take the lead in promoting the best international practices in the renewable energy and energy efficiency sector.
From 2011 to 2014 with the financial support of the Energy and Biomass Project modern biomass-fired heating systems were installed in 144 schools, kindergartens and rural community centers in all the districts across the country.
During the project’s second phase (2015-2017) one of the project priorities will be to install biomass-fired boilers in public institutions in small towns and villages, and to combine bioenergy technology with solar energy technology, in particular in kindergartens and healthcare centers.
