49 new biomass heating systems, including 20 solar collectors, will be installed in 2017 using the European funds of the Energy and Biomass Project 49 new biomass heating systems, including 20 solar collectors, will be installed in 2017 using the European funds of the Energy and Biomass Project. As well, 27 kindergartens - beneficiaries of the first phase of the project - will be equipped with solar water heaters that will operate in conjunction with the biomass heating system. 34 schools and kindergartens with straw bale-fired heating plants will be additionally equipped with tractors for bale transportation and loading in the boiler. These are the plans for 2017 of the Energy and Biomass Project. The project is funded by the European Union and implemented by the United Nations Development Programme.

Tinerii din Moldova aduc energie regenerabilă în comunitățile și familiile lor 11 august 2016. Imaginați-vă o moară de vânt, care combină tehnologii utilizate încă din Evul Mediu cu cercetările de ultimă generație. Este eficientă și nu poluează mediul înconjurător, deoarece nu produce CO2. De altfel, ne și ajută să economisim banii pe care i-am fi cheltuit pe electricitate.Un prototip al unei astfel de mori de vânt a fost proiectat de Denis, un băiat de 14 ani din satul Baurci din Gagauz-Yeri*.
Lighting the way for climate-resilient energy in Moldova In Moldova, climate change represents a serious threat to the energy sector. With higher temperatures, fluctuating rainfall, and an increasing number and severity of extreme weather events, climate impacts are decreasing the efficiency of power stations and pipelines, and compromising energy production and delivery. For a country with high dependence on imported energy, Moldova has experienced significant increases in the prices for natural gas and electricity over the past few years. Coupled with currency volatility, consumers throughout Moldova are struggling to pay their energy bills.
SUN Da-I Fest brings green energy in capital’s heart Thousands of people have come today to the Stefan cel Mare Public Garden to discover environment-friendly technologies and enjoy listening to solar-powered musical instruments.

Women leading the way to climate-resilience in Moldova In the small town of Sîngerei, in northern Moldova, women have been trained to start sustainable businesses. The aim is to empower women and encourage equal participation in resilience-building activities, including training in climate-resilient farming practices.
Energy - success story In Moldova, climate change represents a serious threat to the energy sector. With higher temperatures, fluctuating rainfall, and an increasing number and severity of extreme weather events, climate impacts are decreasing the efficiency of power stations and pipelines, and compromising energy production and delivery.
Young people from the left bank of the Nistru River learned to produce green energy Twenty five young people and five local coordinators from the left bank of the Nistru River learned how to produce clean energy from natural sources and to make their communities environment-friendly at a eco festival conducted during 25-27 March 2016. This was the first eco festival for the left bank of the Nistru. The event was initiated by the Energy and Biomass Project funded by the European Union and implemented by the United Nations Development Programme.
500 hectares of pastures in Orhei district are rehabilitated with EU support 500 hectares of pastures in the National Park Orhei are rehabilitated and maintained to produce improved and higher fodder yields. At the same time, this contributes to the reduction of soil erosion and greenhouse gas emissions. All these achievements are possible due to the financial support of the European Union, provided through the project “CLIMA EAST”, implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
Climate Change - Phenomenon Background Life on earth is made possible by energy from the sun, which arrives mainly in the form of visible light. About 30 per cent of sunlight is scattered back into space by the outer atmosphere, but the rest reaches the earth's surface, which reflects it in the form of a calmer, more slow-moving type of energy called infrared radiation. (This is the sort of heat thrown off by an electric grill before the bars begin to grow red.) Infrared radiation is carried slowly aloft by air currents, and its eventual escape into space is delayed by greenhouse gases such as water vapour, carbon dioxide, ozone, and methane.
THE UN SECRETARY GENERAL MESSAGE ON THE INTERNATIONAL DAY OF RURAL WOMEN
