«We continue to seek and involve international partners in the Energy Efficiency Fund. Apart from the European Union and the Government of Germany, with whom we are already collaborating and who are also ready to provide financial and technical assistance in this direction, we expect Denmark to become a partner in this sector», claimed Vice Prime Minister/ Minister for Regional Development, Construction, Housing and Utilities of Ukraine Hennadii Zubko on the outcomes of the meeting with Ruben Madsen, the Ambassador of the Kingdom Denmark in Ukraine and Tina Kollerup Hansen, Investment Director, Danida Business Finance.
«The participation of Danish companies in the Fund projects related to engineering in the areas of energy audit and energy sciences, the development of technical solutions, the provision of equipment, and the possibility of joining the multi-donors fund to co-finance the implementation of energy-efficient measures is seen as a promising direction. Moreover, Denmark is interested in implementing municipal infrastructure projects in Ukraine, in particular in the areas of water, heat supply, household waste management and modernization of social facilities», stressed the Vice Prime Minister.
According to him, Ministry for Regional Development, Construction, Housing and Utilities of Ukraine will prepare shortly a package of investment projects that will be proposed to the Danish side.
Danida Business Finance targets key infrastructure sectors where investment improves the climate for economic development and provides subsidised loans to large infrastructure projects.
