EU Gateway is an EU-funded initiative helping European SMEs to establish long-lasting business collaborations in difficult markets abroad. EU Gateway  business missions act as entry ticket to markets which offer important opportunities for EU companies and which are at the same time difficult to penetrate, for example due to differences in business culture or regulatory requirements.

During the last EU Gateway cycle (2008-2014), 46 business missions have been organised to Japan and Korea with tangible results for the 1 500 participating companies – 83% found the business mission highly useful to increase their market understanding, 64% established business collaborations, 30% saw their revenue grow following the mission.

Energy Efficiency in the Industrial Sector of Moldova.

The industrial sector is one of three main energy consumers with 12.5% in the country energy consumption (2013 year) following residential sector (41.5%) and transport sector (28.5%). Industrial Energy Efficiency represents a key element of a country's energy security strategy as the cost-effective measure with financial, economic, social and environmental benefits to meet their rapidly increasing energy demand. The energy balance of industry in 2013 year is related to coal energy (21.4%), natural gas (22.6%), electricity (29.2 %) and thermal heat (20.2%). The rest of energy come from oil products (6.2%) and the energy of biomass and waste fuel (0.4%).  [BNS report]

The priority policies and actions sets by National Energy Efficiency Program (NEEP ) shall be implemented during 2011-2020 in order to meet the challenges emerged as a result of energy prices increase, dependency on imported energy resources and the impact of the energy sector on climate change. The sector of energy import has the value of 94.8% in the country energy balance in 2013 year. Increased energy efficiency should lead to reduced dependency on imports and could have significant financial benefits on national budgets.

General objectives for industrial sector targeted by NEEP:
 - investment stimulation in energy-efficient equipment;
 - promotion of energy-efficient technologies;

Implementation of the NEEP shall be ensured through National Energy Efficiency Action Plan (NEEAP ) and National Renewable Energy Action Plan (NREAP), to be newly approved every three years. The Energy Strategy of Moldova until 2030 year and National Development Strategy „Moldova 2020" include deep economic analysis and targets for energy efficiency:
- reducing the primary energy consumption by 20% until 2020;
- increasing the share of renewable energy sources in the overall energy balance up to 20% in 2020;
- increasing the share of biofuels to at least 10% in the total amount of fuels used in 2020;
- reducing the GHG emissions by 25% until 2020.

The general benefits from energy efficiency measures in industry are:
- increasing productivity and profitability;
- increasing of competitiveness;
- reduced impact of industrial activities on the environment and the climate
- reduced losses in energy transportation and distribution;
- implementation of energy efficiency EU standards and best-practices;
- increased public awareness about energy efficiency;
- support of country's Gas Emanation Reduction and energy security goals.

Over the last decade Moldovan industry has achieved significant improvements in terms of energy efficiency and productivity but substantial economically attractive opportunities certainly remain. The International Energy Agency estimates in about 30% the average economically feasible energy savings in global industry; energy savings that would be mainly achievable through the wide dissemination and adoption of existing best-available commercial energy efficiency practices and technologies.

Availon announces record year with additional 620MW wind assets under contract

Availon, the leading multi-brand independent service provider for wind turbines, announced today a record year for the company, with the addition to its global portfolio of 620MW of wind turbine generators under operation & maintenance (O&M) contracts. Mature European markets such as Germany, Spain and Italy, which have a great number of wind farms coming out of warranty, represent the lion's share of Availon’s recent performance.

“This year, we have so far added 390 wind turbine generators to our existing fleet. Compared to the previous year, which was also very strong, this means a 20% growth. The base of our success is not only the broad range of services and turbine types that we cover, but also the fact that asset owners see, that we are able to offer a flexible and very reliable service to get the highest availability and energy yield.", commented CEO, Ulrich Schomakers.

Availon has built its competitive advantage by consistently adding new turbine models to its offering. The company is for instance the first ISP able to offer full service O&M contract for Gamesa wind turbine technology in the world. “What is really new here is that many of the newly contracted wind turbine generators have been manufactured by Gamesa. The capital we invested in building up a state-of-the-art expertise in Gamesa turbine technology is really paying off", explained Schomakers.

A significant increase in new O&M contracts was also recorded for GE and Vestas turbines, which still make up for the majority of turbines under contract at Availon. Further, the average age of turbines under contract has dropped because more and more wind farm owners decide to change from OEMs to Availon as soon as the warranty ends.

This trend is set to continue. MAKE Consulting forecasted a 10% growth, on average, per year, over the next six years in its Global Wind Turbine O&M 2014 report.  “Customers, banks and insurers know that Availon is an attractive alternative to the turbine manufacturers for aftermarket service, and push even for a switch over. There will be plenty of opportunities available to us in the booming O&M market and we are well positioned to take full advantage of them”, concluded Global Sales Manager, Michael Richter.

Greenpeace: Romania could cover 84% of energy from renewable sources in 2050

A new study Greenpeace Romania aims to facilitate access to those interested in available funding sources for investment in renewable energy and energy efficiency to information and resources in a timely manner.

Greenpeace Romania supports the transition to an energy future built around renewable resources, with reduced negative impact on the environment, health and economy, and friendly environment. Greenpeace studies show that Romania has great potential for generating renewable energy: in 2050, Romania could cover 84% of energy from sun, wind, thermal, etc. This transition involves efforts and political commitment at the highest decision making implemented through strategies, legislation and funding. However, the transition to clean energy has large implications at local and individual level through the implementation of photovoltaic or wind for consumption at household, community farm.

"We want investment in clean energy sources and reducing consumption become a phenomenon spread across the country at all levels: from household equipment to equip institutions and companies. The will be more such investments, so they will be more accessible and easier to implement. It is important to show that the pioneering phase is nearing completion and that the land for large-scale investment is already prepared. ", Said Ionut Cepraga, Campaigns Coordinator of Greenpeace Romania.
