Energy in Moldova is a constant headache. We on 96 % depend on the energy delivered from abroad. Import of energy which constantly rises in price, puts our economy on knees. Proceeding from it, we should give special attention to nonconventional, renewed sources. The solar energy concerns these sources, wind, hydraulic power, biological weight, thermal energy of the Earth. Now in Moldova the project «Energy and a biomass in Moldova» is started. The project should be introduced in 2011-2014, the general budget of the project of 14,56 million euro. Money gives the European Union - 14 million euro and PROON-Moldova - 0,56 million euro.
Our inquiry: in Moldova in a year it is made about 700 thousand tons of straw which on power consumption is equal to 250 million cubic metres of natural gas. This quantity of straw - gas makes about 25 % of annual consumption. In turn it is possible to warm with this quantity about 9 million sq. metres of the areas or more than 100 thousand apartments. If we force straw to work on us (instead of to burn it in the field), we will receive notable economy of means.
