Short description of the overall project

Ukraine is seeking to reduce its very high energy consumption, which puts a serious strain on the public budget, businesses and the population. The reforms which are urgently needed to achieve this goal, and which are also required as the country moves towards closer integration with the European Union, have been instigated but are making only very slow progress.

The project supports the responsible Ukrainian institutions, in particular the Ministry for Regional Development, Construction, Housing and Communal Services and the State Agency of Ukraine for Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving, in three interlinked fields of action:

  • Policy advisory services
  • Implementation of  reforms
  • Information and dialogue in the political decision-making process
