Strengthening capacity of the State Agency on Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving of Ukraine (SAEE)
on the development of energy production from renewable energy sources, production and use of alternative fuels
The Austrian-Italian project consortium, consisting of E-Control (project lead), the Austrian Energy Agency, the Environmental Agency Austria, the Federal Ministry of Sustainability and Tourism together with its Italian junior partner EURAC research was awarded for the implementation of this project by the end of 2018. The project implementation started on 1 March 2019.
The main target of the project is to increase the overall share of energy from renewable energy sources in Ukraine’s gross final energy consumption and to strengthen the capacity of the State Agency on Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving of Ukraine (SAEE) and other relevant stakeholders in implementing the national policy and legislation in the area of renewable energy. The project aims to ensure that the development of energy production from renewable energy sources is conducted in line with the relevant EU acquis by further harmonizing the Ukrainian legislation with EU legislation and by providing assistance on the implementation and development of Ukraine’s plans on energy from renewable sources. The availability of information on renewables and its benefits as well as public access to this information should be developed and improved.
