Renewable in % Electricity Production
According to the Moldovan Energy Strategy 2030, Moldova aims to increase the share of renewables in the country's final energy consumption to 17% in 2020 (27.8% reached in 2017), with a specific goal of 10% in transport. Electricity from renewables (mostly from wind and biogas) is expected to reach 17% of the total electricity consumption in 2020 (6% in 2018). The Strategy also planned 400 MW worth of additional wind and solar generation capacities through tenders.
