Chisinau, 22 July /MOLDPRES/ - The centralized heating supply systems from Moldova will be assessed with the support of the World Bank, in order to analyze their technical state and define the model of their development.
The World Bank’s project is set including to evaluate the economic potential and the efficiency of the sub-sector and identify new strategies of public policies, in order to carry out the economic potential of efficiency of these enterprises; these measures will be valid for at least next ten years.
„We can integrate multiple other energy sources, other but the traditional, fossil ones, in the centralized heating supply systems, which we cannot do in the case of the individual systems and this makes the centralized heating supply systems more flexible and attractive. The centralized heating supply systems can absorb the excess of renewable electric energy produced, can integrate the incineration, co-incineration of the solid municipal waste, energy plants; solutions of stocking of various kinds can be coupled in these systems, which can provide a flow of flexibility to the energy system,’’ the state secretary at the Energy Ministry, Constantin Borosan, said.
Moldova has a potential of solid biomass which has not been turned to account, which can be integrated into the systems in the centralized heating supply systems, the state secretary of the Energy Ministry in charge of de-carbonization, Carolina Novac, said.
According to data by the National Energy Regulatory Agency, presently, 10 enterprises hold licences for producing thermal energy, as compared to the 1990s, when there were 40 such enterprises, practically in al district centres. The biggest enterprises are Termoelectrica from Chisinau and Thermal Power Station Nord from Balti (CET Nord).
