Ministry of Regional Development, Construction, Housing and Communal Services of Ukraine in synergy with the World Bank developed a roadmap for the work of the association of co-owners of multi-apartment buildings with the Energy Efficiency Fund (EEF). The blueprint clearly stipulates for the specific actions needed to be done by the condominiums in order to receive both financial and technical assistance from the EEF, as well as the principles of the future program of thermomodernization of residential buildings from the EEF. This was announced by Vice Prime Minister/Minister of Regional Development, Construction, Housing and Communal Services of Ukraine Hennadii Zubko on the outcomes of the meeting of the Coordination Council of Energy Efficiency Fund.
"This draft will become a specific roadmap both in the terms of technical assistance and in attracting fuding for thermomodernization projects for nearly 30 thousand of associations of co-owners of multi-apartment buildings that are already established in Ukraine", Hennadii Zubko emphasized. According to him, at present, a sum worth € 40-50 billion is needed for implementation of energy efficiency and insulation projects in multi-apartment buildings.
It is worth mentioning that on September 18, 2018, the first meeting of the Coordination Council of Energy Efficiency Fund with the participation of Katarína Mathernová, Deputy Director-General for Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations of the European Commission was held. At the meeting the development of an action plan for launching the Energy Efficiency Fund and further coordination of the work of international partners and donors with regard to energy efficiency reform were endorsed. Katarína Mathernová also informed that the European Union will provide the next tranche in the amount of € 54 million for the work of the Energy Efficiency.
