This in-depth review was initiated and carried out in April 2004. The purpose of the review was to assess the progress of the country in fulfilling its commitments under the Protocol on Energy Efficiency and Related Environmental Aspects (PEEREA), and also to enhance the level of cooperation among PEEREA Parties and promote continuous dialogue and transfer of experience and information.
The review was carried out by a team comprising officials from four countries: Mr. Ture Hammar from Denmark (team leader), Mr. Miroslav Marias from the Slovak Republic, Mr. Corneliu Radulescu from Romania and Mr. Oleksandr Zakrevsky from Ukraine. The team was supported by Mr. Tudorel Constantinescu and Mrs. Valya Peeva from the Energy Charter Secretariat. The review team visited Moldova on 5-8 April 2004 and met with representatives of several organisations listed in Annex 4 of this publication. The organisation of the mission was undertaken by officials of the Ministry of Energy of Moldova, to whom the team addresses special thanks.
The report is based mainly on materials provided by Moldova. Other relevant sources of information, e.g., publications of the International Energy Agency (IEA), the World Bank, EBRD, UNDP, etc., were also used.
