Training on the use of COMFAR III Expert software were held in the premises of Kyiv National Economics University named after Vadym Hetman. Training were conducted by UNIDO ILC lecturers. Representatives of business associations, enterprises, investment agencies, NGO and other organizations completed weekly course on the use of COMFAR III Expert software.
On 29 November 2016, the Steering Committee – a management body of the Project – held the meeting.

These days the UN Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) celebrates its 50th anniversary. The key message in the speeches is "Together for a sustainable future". In practice this means Partnership development.
The delegation of Ukraine takes part in the festivities on the occasion of 50th anniversary from the date of UNIDO’s foundation and embraces the opportunity to strengthen the Organization’s presence in the country.
UNIDO’s 50th Anniversary:
Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Improvement in the Small and Medium Enterprises of Ukraine
Round table (18 November 2016)
The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) celebrates its 50th anniversary in November. For the recent decade, in the scope of its cooperation with Ukraine, UNIDO have completed and continue implementing the range of technical assistance projects in the priority industries by requests of Ukrainian government.
The necessity to improve the level of energy safety in Ukraine is defined as one of the key priorities of the state. Thus adoption of renewable energy sources as the part of the process of fuel switching from conventional fuel and energy resources is a basic element of current energy policy. At the same time, implementation of energy saving technologies and improving energy efficiency of the economy will contribute to improvement in the environment, greenhouse gases emission reduction as well as compliance with international commitments of Ukraine to prevent climate changes.
The practical evidence of such state policy in the sphere of renewable energy is the "Improving energy efficiency and promoting renewable energy in the agro-food and other small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Ukraine" project initiated by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and the Global Environment Facility (GEF), which implementation period expires in May 2016.
The key institution for the project implementation is the Institute of Renewable Energy of NAS of Ukraine. The public counterparts are the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food and the State Agency of Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving of Ukraine.
To develop a market environment for scaling up energy efficiencies and enhanced use of renewable energy (RE) technologies for fuel switching in the energy intensive manufacturing small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Ukraine as a basis for promoting their competitiveness while ensuring an integrated approach for lower carbon intensity and improvement in the local environment.
The project is open for partnership. Your first step to mutual cooperation is filled questionnaire. Please, send it to us and we will contact you.
