This becomes particularly relevant in the conditions of energy resource deficits caused by Russian aggression.
“Thermal modernization is a priority for the country’s development. That’s why we involve a maximum number of stakeholders with relevant experience and expertise to implement this process,” noted Olena Shuliak.
“The meeting allowed us to better understand the energy supply situation the country faces during this complex period of war. The mutual exchange of information found its reflection in constructive decisions and further actions regarding the implementation of energy-saving measures at the community and regional levels,” shared Anar Rafiyev.
“The synergy of efforts between public initiatives and legislative authorities will create the best conditions for seeking efficient solutions and implementing our plans for the renewal of Ukraine based on transparency and energy efficiency,” added Yehor Stefanovich.
