The Syrian Ministry of Electricity Transmission Establishment has issued two tenders for the construction of solar power plants with a combined generation capacity of 63 MW. The first tender is for a 40 MW solar plant near the Jandar natural gas power plant in the Homs governorate of central Syria. The second tender is for a 23 MW solar project near Damascus. Both tenders have a bid deadline of March 20, 2020.
Moldovan energy regulator ANRE has approved 15-year FiTs for renewable energy projects with a generation capacity of not more than 1 MW. The solar FiT has risen slightly from the proposed MDL 1.79 per kWh to MDL 1.88 per kWh. The developers who secure anFiT contract will have two years to get their projects grid connected. The government expects to install 15 MW of new solar capacity under the FiTprogramme for small-scale arrays. The state-owned energy distributor Energocom will be the sole buyer of the clean electricity generated.
