The Ukrainian government and the European Commission are ready for further cooperation in developing and replenishing the Energy Efficiency Fund in this country. That was the key topic of today’s phone conversation of Ukraine’s Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman and Vice President Maros Sefcovic.
Groysman reiterated that in June, the parliament approved three bills on energy resources audit, implementation of mechanisms and technologies of effective energy use, and on performance of the Energy Efficiency Fund.
‘We are also grateful for the preliminary decision of the European Commission to allocated 50 million Euros to support the Energy Efficiency Fund; we hope to complete all formal procedures by the end of the year. I can assure our colleagues that the government will continue reforms in this area, so that we can get the additional financial aid from the EU in the amount of another 50 million Euros,’ Groysman said.
