Selection of Partner Cities in Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts

Attention! The USAID Municipal Energy Reform Project in Ukraine (USAID Project) announces the competitive selection of partner cities and/or territorial communities in Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts – exclusively for the territories controlled by the Government of Ukraine. One important direction in implementing the USAID Project is working with partner cities to improve the efficiency of their municipal energy resource consumption. This goal is achieved by training specialists and assisting the cities in developing Sustainable Energy Action Plans (SEAP) and similar documents that identify energy development and promote the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. These plans are based on energy audits of the energy supply systems and systems for providing communal services. In addition, the USAID Project supports the cities in the creation of their municipal energy management systems, and assists with attracting finances for implementing the measures identified in the energy plans and SEAPMore details<<

Clean Energy Sources in Volynska, Sumska and Khersonska Oblasts

Team of the USAID Municipal Energy Reform Project keeps informing about clean energy sources which the Ukrainians may use as alternative to natural gas. This time, we have created a series of information posters representing potential of Khersonska, Sumska and Volynska oblasts. For instance, total potential of clean energy sources in Khersonska oblast is 42% of the current consumption level. Almost half of consumed resources (mainly, natural gas) can be substituted in the region with cheaper and environmentally clean resources – for example, agricultural waste (straw, peel, etc.). Please read about alternative energy sources in Sumska and Volynska oblasts here. In the near future, similar posters will be created also for other partner regions of the USAID Project.

Energy Efficient Activities in Kamianets-Podilskyi

On August 18th, experts of the USAID Municipal Energy Reform Project in Ukraine (USAID Project) delivered a seminar on the topic of Implementation of Energy Efficient Measures in Multiunit Apartment Buildings for residents of Kamianets-Podilskyi. The event has been initiated by the city residents themselves who contacted a local OSBB Clean Energy Support Resource Center (RC). It is one of the thirteen RCs, which have been established in the partner cities with support of the USAID Project. The seminar was attended by nearly 70 representatives of local condominium associations (OSBBs), OSBB associations, City Council, and the nongovernmental organizations engaged in the activities of OSBB creation and operation. Experts of the USAID Project told the participants about the specifics of implementing energy efficiency activities in multiunit apartment buildings and of attracting financial resources. Also, they have discussed the legislative requirements for keeping buildings in good repair, methods of conducting technical operation, intervals and scope of building maintenance and repairs. Presented at the seminar was a calculator developed by specialists of the USAID Project, which will make it possible for OSBBs to automatically calculate the values of building’s physical deterioration (of its structural units and utilities). These findings will make it possible for OSBBs to take effective decisions on conducting building inspections, identifying the scope of work required for ensuring reliability and safety of their further use. This software has been developed at the request of Resource Centers of the USAID Project partner cities.

Kyiv Energy Efficiency Program Gains Momentum

Diana Korsakaite, Chief of Party of the USAID Project, spoke at a signing ceremony with important implications for Energy Efficiency projects in Kyiv. “The USAID Municipal Energy Reform Project in Ukraine actively supports the implementation of energy efficiency measures and the attraction of investments in the housing sector of the Ukrainian capital. Next week we will open a free information hotline on saving energy, programs to support energy efficiency measures, the establishment of condominiums, and other issues. Anyone can get free expert advice on how to properly insulate a house, how to save energy, how to create condominiums, how to receive a loan and compensation for implementing energy efficiency projects in buildings under state and municipal programs, etc.”

The event marked the signing of an agreement between the Department of Housing and Communal Infrastructure of the KSCA, with Oshchadbank and Ukrgazbank regarding the reimbursement of the "warm" loans principal for the residents of Kyiv. The agreement envisages that 40% of the loan for the materials and equipment is reimbursed by the State Agency for Energy Efficiency, and 30% by the city of Kyiv. The maximum amount of compensation from the municipal budget is UAH 14,000 per apartment per year. It is expected that funding from the local budget in 2016 will reach at least UAH 4 million.

Quick facts about Alternative Energy 

Biomass is organic, meaning it is made of material that comes from living organisms. The most common biomass materials used for energy are plants, wood, and waste.



Wind is a clean source of renewable energy that produces no air or water pollution. And since the wind is free, operational costs are nearly zero once a turbine is erected.

Wind energy


Every hour the sun beams onto Earth more than enough energy to satisfy global energy needs for an entire year.

Solar energy


Hydropower is electricity generated using the energy of moving water. Hydroelectric power provides almost one-fifth of the world's electricity.
