In 2014, Ukraine and Denmark started cooperation in the field of green energy. Due to the occupation of the Donetsk/Luhansk regions and the annexation of Crimea, the results and achievements of cooperation were minimised. However, the beginning of full-scale military aggression sharpened the need to transition to the use of renewable energy sources and decentralise the entire system.
In July 2023, the minister of energy of Ukraine, Herman Galushchenko and the ambassador of Denmark to Ukraine, Ole Egberg Mikkelsen, signed a memorandum on energy cooperation. Denmark, as a professional in the development and use of wind energy, will help Ukraine in the implementation of these technologies. This is especially relevant for post-war reconstruction.
In total, for the years 2022-2023, Ukraine received over €700 million in loans and donations from international partners to restore energy infrastructure damaged by Russian attacks. Of these, large consignments of equipment and DKK 4 million were from Denmark.
