Eight journalists from the Republic of Moldova will participate this year in a study visit to Denmark to learn of this country’s experience in renewables’ production and usage. The visit is organized by the Energy and Biomass Project, funded by the European Union and implemented by the United Nations Development Programme.

Energy and Biomass Project invites journalists to apply to the contest that will choose the team to pay a visit to Denmark. The application file can be downloaded from this link and shall be submitted before 23 October 2015.

The journalists will be selected based on the following criteria:

  • portfolio of media materials on biomass energy
  • complexity and correctness of addressing the green energy issue
  • media project to promote biomass energy following the study visit.

The group of journalists from the Republic of Moldova will learn, in the course of seven days, of the development of the green energy sector in Denmark. The journalists will visit companies that produce biofuel, that manage and supply biomass heating and electricity, will talk to the representatives of the authorities, the private sector and civil society about the challenges in the area of renewables.

40% of the total energy produced in Denmark comes from renewables. The largest share – 70% - of the total used renewable energy is biomass energy, especially agricultural waste. Denmark has over 30 years of experience in producing biomass energy and is the country with the highest rate of agricultural waste use.

Moldova Energy and Biomass Project II is a three-year project (2015-2017). The Project is financed by the European Union with a total budget of 9.41 million EURO and implemented by the United Nations Development Programme.
