The RRA Expert Consultation Workshop will bring together renewable energy stakeholders in the Republic of Moldova to discuss challenges and opportunities for the development of renewables in the country. The outcomes of the discussions will provide substantive inputs for the preparations of the RRA report. The workshop will be jointly organised by IRENA and the Ministry of Economy and Infrastructure. In addition, IRENA delegation will hold bilateral meetings with key government and non-government stakeholders in the Republic of Moldova.

In light of the government’s commitment to advance renewable energy deployment in the Republic of Moldova, the Ministry of Economy and Infrastructure in cooperation with IRENA recently initiated a Renewables Readiness Assessment (RRA) process, with a view to support the country’s efforts in strengthening the enabling environment for renewable energy deployment.

The Renewables Readiness Assessment identifies the actions needed to overcome a country’s barriers to renewable energy deployment, with IRENA providing technical support and expertise to facilitate consultations among different national stakeholders. While the process helps to shape appropriate policy and regulatory choices, each country determines which renewable energy sources and technologies are relevant and consistent. As part of this process, an Expert Consultation Workshop will be jointly organised by IRENA and the Ministry of Economy and Infrastructure on 4 June in Chisinau.

The Workshop will bring together renewable energy stakeholders to discuss challenges and opportunities for the development of renewables in the country. The outcomes of the discussions will provide substantive inputs for the preparations of the RRA report.In addition, IRENA delegation will hold bilateral meetings with key government and non-government stakeholders in the Republic of Moldova to discuss the current status of renewables in the country, key challenges and opportunities, and to get feedback on the preliminary RRA findings (background and issues).
