Moldova Eco-Energetica: applications evaluation
27-Sep-2012, by Ina Zglavuta, UNDP, via web
The evaluation of applications registered in Moldova Eco-Energetica Contest started. Over 60 participants compete for 11 out of 12 categories of the biggest prize contests in the area of renewable energy and energy efficiency in Moldova.
Moldova Eco-Energetica Contest is unrolled at the initiative of Moldova Energy and Biomass Project, funded by the EU and co-funded and implemented by UNDP Moldova. The submitted applications, depending on the category, will be reviewed by four assessment panels. "Each panel is made up of a minimum of 5 people that represent state institutions related to the field of renewable energy and energy efficiency, renowned specialists in the field of energy, academia and civil society representatives, journalists, experts in the area of mass-media and communication," said Mihai Stratan, Director of the Energy Efficiency Agency, one of the organizers of the Moldova Eco-Energetica contest.
The evaluation experts had a joint meeting today, where they signed a statement of impartiality, by which they commit themselves to withdraw from the process of judging/assessing the projects participating in the contest in which they were co-initiators or were involved in their implementation.
We would like to specify that the applications registered in the competition will be examined in three stages: (1) examination of the submitted applications by the evaluation panels (2) verification visit in the field and (3) decision of the Coordination Council of Moldova Eco-Energetica Contest.
Each application submitted will be evaluated based on specific evaluation criteria for each category, contained in the Regulation on contest organization and conduct, made public in July, when the contest was launched.
After determining three finalists for each category, the members of the evaluation panel are to carry out field visits in order to analyze the project development/result. Subsequently, the applications of the three finalists will be submitted for examination to the Coordination Council that will designate the winners of the Moldova Eco- Energetica contest. The decisions of the Coordination Council are adopted based on the majority vote of the present members. The members of the Coordination Council will withdraw from voting on the projects in which they were donors, co-initiators or were involved in their implementation.
The Coordination Council is made up of 11 members representing the line ministries, local authorities, civil society, academia and donors.
Awards of MOLDOVA ECO-ENERGETICA Contest, 2012 Edition, along with other valuable prizes will be granted in late November during a festive event. The participants enrolled in the contest are competing for the title of:
- The Best Solar, Wind, Hydraulic and Geothermal Energy Project,

- The Best energy efficiency project in public and/or private sector,
- The Best Communication and Awareness Initiative,
