At a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, which was held in the coming days, a resolution was adopted to develop a special action plan at the national level for the energy efficiency of Ukraine for a period that should be completed before 2030. Based on what was written in the program, before this period, the initial and final use of energy in the country should not be higher than 91,468 and 5,446 thousand tons, respectively. The figures being considered are in oil equivalent.
The energy service contract stipulates that the indicators of primary energy use by the specified year will be reduced by approximately 22%, and final energy by 17%, respectively.
At the meeting, the Minister of Energy emphasized that one of the key tasks of the plan and its immediate implementation is the need to reduce carbon emissions by about 56.6 million tons.
For 2021-2023, the state program approved a whole list of actions prescribed in the plan. According to it, at least 170 local-level programs for the introduction of energy-efficient measures will be implemented in residential buildings. For enterprises, the number of projects has been increased to 180. Annually it is planned to sign at least 200 contracts with objects of both communal and state authorities.
According to the plan, it is proposed to implement such a process as:
- accounting of thermal energy, hot and drinking water;
- creation of a regulatory and legal framework, according to which the number of chargers for electric vehicles will be increased;
- the possibility of expanding incentives in the field of heat transfer regulation.
Through the implementation of certain points of the plan, it is possible to contribute to the launch of the program for the thermal modernization of dwellings proposed by V. Zelensky.
