Zamazeyeva said that in Ukraine:

  • the already established State Fund for decarbonization and energy-efficient transformation;
  • a large-scale state leasing platform was introduced to attract global, in particular Danish, energy-efficient technologies and equipment in the field of alternative energy sources, which Ukrainian consumers will be able to use, on unique terms;
  • a number of energy efficiency programs have been developed to support the population, private households, local self-government bodies, ESCO companies and the budget sector, as well as enterprises.

Denmark has everything for this – experience, especially with regard to energy efficiency in heat supply, clean technologies, financial instruments (Investment Fund of Denmark), etc.,” the message emphasized.
