Variatsiya Ltd. is among top manufacturers of parquet strip and parquet in Ukraine and has been boosting its exports to EU countries of final products compliant to world standards since 1998. Growing product outputs entailed increasing energy consumption. At the same time, the processing wastes amounted to almost 15% raw materials and caused waste disposal problems. The Project management took a strategic decision to modernize heat economy of the enterprise.
On May 15, Mykola Kobets, an expert of the Project, took part in the meeting of renewable energy businesses, profile associations and experts chaired by the Head of SAEE Sergiy Savchuk. The meeting focused on creating a multifunctional Interactive Map of green energy projects development in Ukraine. The goal of the map is to provide potential investors and engineering companies with the data they may need at the pre-project phase of “green” projects.
The Project provided the opportunity to the representative Ukrainian delegation to take part in the traditional Vienna Energy Forum organized by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization. This year the Forum is focused on sustainable energy for the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement 2015. See the Forum updates at its official website.
One of the Project’s objectives is to promote renewable energy, disseminate information about RE technologies and advantages of their use in industry as well as in utilities sector. Recently, the Project experts together with the Director of Renewable Energy Institute of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine who, in parallel, chairs the Steering Committee of the Project, have organized the get-acquainted excursion for the 5th TV channel journalists.
During their visit to the Institute and the Project office, the journalists enjoyed the opportunity to see solar panels and photovoltaic systems in operation, to interview the experts on the Project activities, to familiarize themselves with the development of interactive atlas of Ukraine’s renewable energy potential.
Today, the fifth group of specialists from agrarian, agro-processing sector enterprises and lecturers of the agrarian higher educational institutions have passed the tests and got the certificates issued by the National University of Life and Environmental Sciences of Ukraine on the completed advanced profile training and the certificates issued by the UNIDO/GEF Project. Our congratulations on this occasion to the graduates, trainers and organizers of the training!
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).
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.
