Tetra Tech is the implementer of the Moldova Energy Security Activity (MESA) which is a 4-year project funded by the United States Agency for International Development. The objective of the Moldova Energy Security Activity (MESA) is to strengthen Moldova’s energy security by: (1) advancing physical and market integration of the Moldovan energy sector with Europe; (2) increasing renewable energy integration; and (3) increasing investment in energy efficiency and domestic power generation, particularly through increased adoption of renewable energy technologies.

The Moldova Energy Security Activity (MESA) is supporting Moldelectrica to enhance its capability to provide and manage electricity balancing and load-frequency control to address the challenges caused by increased renewable energy (RES) penetration in the Moldovan electricity grid and participation in the Ukraine-Moldova Control Block which is planning permanent accession to the Continental Europe Synchronous Area.

Within this context, MESA is seeking technical expertise to analyze the operational, technical, physical allocation and legal/regulatory requirements for the deployment of electricity balancing and load-frequency control capabilities.
