Building capacities for energy sector reform in Ukraine

Quarterly monitoring energy efficiency measures in Ukraine:


What is our goal?

This project is designed to facilitate the sharing of Slovak energy sector reform experiences with Ukrainian partners, focusing on improving energy efficiency and the use of renewables, but also on implementing the associated EU legislation and programs, transposing them into national legislation and incorporating it into policies and learning from best practice and successful projects.

We aim to

– train Ukrainian governmental officials responsible for implementing the section of the Association Agreement that deals with harmonizing national legislation with the EU energy acquis, particularly energy efficiency and the use of renewables. The training will include lessons learnt from transposing EU legislation into the national legislations of Visegrad countries

–  provide training for Ukrainian municipal leaders on EU legislation and programs, Slovak and Czech national legislation and policy to improve energy efficiency at the municipal level. This will include lessons learnt from projects successfully implemented at the municipal level in Slovakia and best practices

– raise public awareness and enhance public knowledge in Ukraine of EU policies on energy efficiency and the use of renewables, with reference to the experiences of Visegrad Four countries.

National experts from V4 countries will deliver presentations on V4 experiences of energy efficiency. Each V4 expert will hold a one-day seminar on his/her country’s experience of implementing the EU legislation, developing national policies and programs for energy efficiency and the use of renewables.

REPORTS: CZ, SK, HU, PL

2. Five-day training session in the Czech Republic for 20 Ukrainian municipal leaders

Seminar involving Czech and Slovak experts

An overview of EU and Czech policies, programs by the European Association of Energy Cities, Covenant of Mayors, Action Plans for sustainable energy in towns and municipalities, innovative financing schemes implemented in Czech cities and regions, the latest approaches to improving the energy efficiency of buildings, regional and municipal energy management systems – multilevel EM systems, improving public awareness of energy efficiency and forging links between municipalities and local inhabitants.

Field trips: learning best practices
Field trips to successful projects mainly relating to municipalities with central heating systems, the modernization of public lighting, the insulation of buildings etc.

3. Energy efficiency fair at a Ukrainian regional center on projects implemented in Slovakia (Lviv)

A small one-day fair of presentations on Slovak energy efficiency and renewables projects, which will form part of the seminar and will involve one or two Slovak and Ukrainian experts.

4. Regional high-level event for municipalities, experts and the general public
