AND ENERGY SAVING OF UKRAINE (SAEE)
Attn. Mr. Ihor Kyrylchuk,
"Improving energy efficiency and promoting renewable energy in the agro-food and other small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Ukraine" UNIDO/GEF Project
Dear Mr. Kyrylchuk,
On behalf of SAEE, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to "Improving energy efficiency and promoting renewable energy in the agro-food and other small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Ukraine" UNIDO/GEF Project and you personally for the support provided to the Agency in arranging and holding at the high professional level of IX International Investment Business Forum “Renewable Energy and Energy Efficient Modernization of Industry” on 23 November 2017 at Premier Palace Hotel .
Besides that, we also would like to thank Mr. Mark Draeck for his participation in the panel “Prospects of Renewable Energy Development. Expert Assessment. International Experience”. We are sure the experience that Mr. Draeck shared with the Business Forum’s participants is a valuable contribution to further development of renewable energy and energy efficiency domain in Ukraine.
ІХ International Investment Business Forum "Renewable Energy and Energy Efficient Modernization of Industry" attracted nearly 800 participants. Mr. Gennadiy Zubko, Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Regional Development, Building and Housing and Communal Services of Ukraine delivered a speech and provided a detailed review of the energy saving in Ukraine. Our Project, a partner of the Forum, was represented by the delegation headed by Mark Draeck, Industrial Development Officer, UNIDO, International Project Coordinator.
The meeting of the Steering Committee was held in Kyiv on 22 November 2017 and positively assessed the fulfillment of the work plans, approved the reports of the Project Team members and the Work Plan 2018. Completion of the projects at pilot enterprises and dissemination of the best practices and the Project’s achievements were designated as priority objectives.
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.
