The Moldova Energy and Biomass Project provides support to public institutions from rural communities to have access to renewable energy sources, ensure energy independence, and community development. With the help of the to the financial support, modern biomass-fired heating systems – an alternative to the ones currently in place – will be installed by 2014 in more than 130 rural schools, kindergartens, and community centres across the country. The Energy and Biomass Project will cover the majority of costs related to the installation of alternative heating systems, while the villages are expected to contribute with at least 15% of total investment value.

Each rural public institution from the Republic of Moldova has the opportunity to have briquette/pellet fired heating systems installed with the financial support granted by the Energy and Biomass Project.
