International Cooperation

Currently Ukraine makes all necessary measures to establish international cooperation in the sectors of energy efficiency and renewable energy development. This is, fulfilment of obligations under Ukraine’s membership in the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe, Energy Community and under joining the Energy Charter treaty. With regard to tendencies of the world economy globalization Ukraine directs its activity first of all to gradual integration of Ukraine into European and transatlantic structures with purpose to enter the European economical space.

At the same time, the Agency with the help of international financial organizations and international donors arranges development of the following financial mechanisms for attracting “green investments” and creating favorable investment climate in the country. Particularly, under implementation of provisions of the Memorandum on understanding in the fields of energy efficiency, renewable energy and alternate types of fuel between the State Agency on Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving of Ukraine and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Finland, the Finnish party supported the initiative of creating the Trust Fund in Ukraine, which is being implemented through the Nordic Environment Finance Corporation (NEFCO). The main coordinator of this fund in Ukraine is the State Agency on Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving of Ukraine. More information on creation of the Fund can be found at the link http://saee.gov.ua/uk/content/finland-ukraine-trust-fund.

The Agency promotes active representation of Ukraine on the international scene as a whole. Particularly, representatives of the State Agency on Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving of Ukraine take part in sessions of the numerous intergovernmental committees which are held in Ukraine and abroad as well.

In addition, the SAEE on behalf of the Parliament developed the Law of Ukraine «On accession of Ukraine to the Statute of the International Renewable Energy Agency «IRENA»           № 2222- VIII, which was adopted on 5th December 2017 by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.  On 24th February 2018 Ukraine became full member of IRENA.
