Extension of the environmental authorization for the Metallurgical Plant and changes to the way of assigning energy vulnerability categories. The latest decisions of the CSE


A regulation on covering the shortage of solid biofuel, used in the heating season by social institutions, will be developed by the Ministry of Energy. Later, the Agency for Energy Efficiency will draw up the list of beneficiaries and the allocated quantities, taking into account the installed power of the thermal plants. The adjustments in this sense were made by the members of the Commission for Exceptional Situations, who met in a new meeting.

According to the Provision, the validity period of the Environmental Authorization regarding waste management and the Authorization for the emission of pollutants into the atmosphere from fixed sources, issued for the SATD “Uzina Metalurgica Moldoveneasca”, was extended until September 30, 2023.

All degrees of energy vulnerability, established for the period November 2022 – March 2023, will be recalculated according to this norm by April 30.
