Head of State Agency for Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving Serhii Savchuk together with the leadership of the Ministry of Energy and Coal Industry, National Energy and Utilities Regulatory Commission of Ukraine and other stakeholders took part in the opening of the new USAID Energy Security Project.
"We have not been cooperating with USAID for the first time. For example, in partnership with the Municipal Energy Reform in Ukraine project, we have joint work both in stimulating communities in energy efficiency and in drafting bills in the "clean" energy sector", Serhii Savchuk stressed.
Given the success of previous joint initiatives with USAID, further cooperation will be as fruitful and effective as, in particular, the development of renewable energy support system; development of "green" electricity ("green" auctions, installation of electric accumulating systems, etc.); development of the sphere of production of solid and liquid biofuels, biogas, garbage energy; promoting the attraction of "green" investments in Ukraine; preparation for the introduction of the market of "green" bonds and stimulation of industrial enterprises for energy efficiency and others.
