Energy Efficiency Plan until 2030 Approved in Ukraine

The Cabinet of ministers approved the National energy efficiency action plan for the period up to 2030

This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of energy of Ukraine.

"The national plan implies a comprehensive approach to energy modernization in almost all sectors of the economy. Energy efficiency is not only about saving money on energy bills. This is a more efficient use and saving of energy resources themselves, a decrease in dependence on imports, and, consequently, a strengthening of our state's energy independence. In addition, energy efficiency is one of the factors in achieving climate goals, decarbonization, and the path to our carbon-free future," said energy minister Herman Halushchenko.

According to the plan, by 2030 it is planned to reduce primary energy consumption by 22.3% and final consumption by 17.1%. Preliminary and final energy consumption in Ukraine should not exceed 91.5 million and 50.5 million tons of oil equivalent, respectively.

To achieve the goals, the national plan identified several measures: the functioning of the energy efficiency fund, incentives for industrial enterprises to achieve energy efficiency, tax instruments for energy efficiency, elimination of administrative barriers in home management, energy labeling and eco-design, as well as complete commercial accounting.

There are also lists of measures to stimulate energy efficiency in specific sectors: the housing and public, industry and energy, and transport sectors.
