The Energy Community Secretariat welcomes today’s adoption of the Law on Energy Efficiency, which aims to transpose the EU Energy Efficiency Directive.
Developed over the course of the last four years, the drafting of the Law was coordinated by several government institutions at a time and supported by an initiative of Members of the Verkhovna Rada, in close cooperation with the Secretariat and with technical assistance provided by the European Union and other donors.
By implementing the energy efficiency acquis, Ukraine paves the way for attracting significant investments by public authorities, residential and commercial energy consumers, International Financial Institutions, commercial banks and private investors into all economic sectors. These will not only make its industry more competitive, but also its households better supplied with energy services, its building stock better insulated and boost the usage of greener energy sources for heating, cooling and lighting.
The Parliament also amended the Law on Alternative Fuel Types to support the development of biomethane production.
