Highlights

  • Moldova is progressively adopting the EU "acquis".
  • In 2022 and 2023, Moldova implemented several actions to reduce its energy dependence on Russia.
  • Inter RAO UES is the largest power producer: its production is located in the secessionist province of Transnistria.
  • Moldovagaz dominates the gas market and its debt to Gazprom represents around 80% of the GDP.
  • The country is highly dependent on imported energy.
  • In October 2023, the government decided to no longer buy gas from Gazprom.
  • Most of the electricity is produced from natural gas (90% in 2022).
  • In 2022, electricity prices rose by 70% for households and by 80% for industry.
  • Gas prices soared threefold for both industry and households in 2022.
  • Natural gas accounts for 48% of the energy mix.
  • The country is developing several power interconnection projects with Romania.

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    Moldova is a landlocked country bordered by Romania to the west and by Ukraine to the East. It was part of the Soviet Union and became an independent country in 1991. Transnistria is a separatist province that seceded from Moldova in 1992. It is not recognized by the UN and is officially considered as part of Moldova.

  • Energy Supply

    Oil:

    Moldova imports almost all the oil products it consumes. Oil product imports increased by an average of 5.5%/year starting in 2015 and reached around 1.2 Mt in 2022.

  • Energy Prices

    Electricity:

    Regulated tariffs vary between the distribution companies and depend on the voltage level. ANRE approved a 30%-45% price increase (depending on the distribution company) in 2015. The price was reduced by around 10% in 2016 because of the 28% drop in the purchasing price from Moldovan Hydropower Plant and thanks to a favourable MDL/USD exchange rate.

  • Energy Consumption

    Energy consumption per capita is approximately 1.5 toe/year (approximately half the European average), including 1 970 kWh of electricity (2022).
