Bulgaria: EBRD invests €100 million in Energy Holding’s bonds

The EBRD has invested €100 million in a new seven-year €550 million bond issue by the Bulgarian Energy Holding (BEH), the state-owned entity which controls the country’s energy assets, including the public suppliers of electricity and gas.

The EBRD’s involvement will help BEH continue its support in relation to key power sector reforms as well as restructure its balance sheet and improve the long-term financial sustainability of Bulgaria’s power sector.

The EBRD bought the seven-year senior unsecured bonds on 26 June 2018 and 31 July 2018. The bonds started trading on the Euronext Dublin exchange on 28 July 2018 and are expected to start trading on the Bulgarian stock exchange in August 2018. The new bond will be used to refinance the €500 million bond issued by BEH in 2013, which will improve the holding’s financial structure.

Moldova: a new kindergarten, renovated with Romanian money, was inaugurated in Mateuţi

The "Steluta" kindergarten in Mateuţi village, Rezina rayon has been renovated within the Program of technical and financial assistance granted by the Government of Romania to preschool institutions in the Republic of Moldova administered by the Moldova Social Investment Fund (MSIF).

The Mateuţi Primaria (Village Hall), Rezina rayon, in 2016 submitted to MSIF a request for reconstruction of the kindergarten in the locality. The facility was built in 1967 and since then has not benefited from any major repairs. A single room was functioning in the institution, with a maximum capacity of 25 children. Thank to the financial support provided by the Romanian Government, the kindergarten was rebuilt.

Following the implementation of the sub-project, the following general construction works were carried out in the kindergarten: the premis of the kindergarten has been reconstructed, a new roof has been arranged, the interior and exterior works have been carried out, new doors and windows have been installed, new floors have been installed, new heating and ventilation systems have been installed, electricity, water supply, and sewage systems have been repared, landscaping works have been carried aut (pavement has been arranged, the playground has been installed). The kindergarten has been equipped with furniture for provided means", MSIF Executive Director, Mircea Esanu, said.

At present, the institution consists of 3 educational modules, which include an activity/rest room, a bathroom unit for children, cloakrooms, a medical cabinet, a kitchen, an office for kitchen staff, a boiler house, a laundry and a linen storeroom, an office for teachers and managers. At present, the kindergarten is attended by 75 children. The project implementation period: 2017-2018.

The Government of Romania has allocated 26 million euros through the "Program of Technical and Financial Assistance granted by the Romanian Government for the renovation of preschool institutions in the Republic of Moldova" for the renovation and equipping of kindergartens in the Republic of Moldova. 845 kindergartens in our country have been renovated for these funds (945 sub-projects in total).

The Moldova Social Investment Fund (MSIF) is the institution selected for implementing and managing the Program.

Romania will provide a financing program for solar installations in homes

The Environment Fund Authority intends to run a program in 2018 to grant non-reimbursable financing to individuals who install photovoltaic panels for their electricity production at home, according to official sources.

Citizens installing these photovoltaic panels can use their energy for their own consumption, and beyond what can be sold in the network, distributors being forced to take over energy. The basic condition is that, in order to benefit from funding, the power discharged into the network must be at most equal to the power it has contracted for the consumption in the network, not higher.

The state will finance about 20,000 Romanians who want to install small power plants with a power of up to 6 kW per house.

We relaunch as a green energy platform

We reassemble today Info-Solar.ro! We already have a few years of experience and a public audience. Today we are releasing a new format on our site in order to respond more readily to our readers' requirements. Known fields do not change. What will change will be the content. We will not focus on the sun but on all the green energies. So, from today onward, the articles about biomass or wind energy, which we have only sporadically published so far, will be used. We believe that better coverage of green energies is a gain for us and especially for the pubic. Let's hear only good things!
