About promotion of energy use from renewable sources

(In edition of the Laws of the Republic of Moldova of 24.03.2017 No. 35, 21.09.2017 No. 185, 16.03.2018 No. 34)

The parliament adopts this organic law.

This law creates necessary basis for application of the Directive of the European Parliament and Council 2009/28/EC of April 23, 2009 about promotion of energy use from renewable sources and change and the subsequent cancellation of directives 2001/77/EC and 2003/30/EC published in the Official magazine of the European Union No. L 140 of June 5, 2009.

Chapter I. General provisions

Article 1. Purpose and tasks of the law

This law is intended for creation of the legal base for promotion and energy use from renewable sources and establishes obligatory national tasks on energy share from renewable sources in gross final energy consumption, and also energy share from renewable sources in end use energy consumption on transport. The law determines regulations by schemes of support, origin guarantees, ministerial procedures, access for producers of energy from renewable sources to networks.

Article 2. Field of regulation

This law regulates area of energy from renewable sources, namely:

a) state administration;

b) calculation of share of energy from renewable sources;

c) the principles and tasks of state policy in the field of energy from renewable sources;

d) methods of achievement of national tasks;

e) conditions of integration of renewable energy resources into national power system;

f) conditions of implementation of activities for production, transportation, distribution and electricity sale from renewable sources, biogas and biofuel;

g) schemes of support for promotion of renewable energy resources;

h) methods of informing on renewable energy resources;

i) main directions of cooperation in the field.

Article 3. Basic concepts

For the purposes of this law the following concepts designate:

biofuel – the liquid or gaseous fuel made from biomass for transport. Biofuel mix with fossil fuel is recognized biocombustible the proportions established by regulations in the field;

solid biofuel – the solid fuel directly or indirectly made from biomass;

biogas – the fuel gas made from biomass which can be used as fuel for development of energy or can be purified to quality of natural gas;

bioliquids – the liquid fuel made from biomass used in the energy purposes except transport, including power generation, energies for needs of heating and chilling;

biomass – biodegradable fraction of products, waste and remaining balance of agricultural industry (including materials of vegetable and animal origin), forestry and the related production industries, and also biodegradable fraction of industrial and household wastes;

the certificate of conformity – the document issued on the basis of rules of certification, certifying compliance properly of the identified biofuel to standards or other regulating documents in the field;

gross final energy consumption – the energy carriers delivered in the energy purposes for needs of the industry, transport, households, services industry including public services, for agricultural industry, forestry and fish breeding, including consumption of electrical and heat energy in the sector of production of electrical and heat energy, and also technology consumption and losses of electrical and heat energy in power and thermal networks;

the contract for difference - the contract signed between competent producer and the central electric power supplier to which to the competent producer selling the made electric power in the competitive market the positive or negative difference between the market price and prices/rates established according to this law is provided;

the maximum level of capacity – the total value of installed capacity of power plants which use identical production technologies of the electric power from renewable sources, admissible at the national level for application of the corresponding scheme of the support established by each type of technology for production of electricity from renewable sources;

aero thermal energy – the energy which is kept in the form of heat in air;

energy from renewable sources - the energy received as a result of use of renewable not fossil sources (further - renewable sources), namely wind, solar, aero thermal, geothermal, hydrothermal and energy of the ocean, hydroelectric energy, biomass, biogas, the gas which is formed in case of decomposition of waste (landfill gas), and the gas which is formed at stations on sewage treatment;
