Major projects of the «Energy Transition» coalition
Last year, the main work focused on research and responding to energy challenges.
Together with the NGO «Active Consumers and Prosumers Union» we have prepared 2 studies of the current state of RES stations up to 1 MW and options for supporting distributed generation in Ukraine:
• Small participants in the RES market in Ukraine. Study of the generation segment with an installed capacity of up to 1 MW: https://energytransition.in.ua/wp-content/uploads/...
• Report «Stimulation of distributed generation in the 4th EU Energy Package»: https://energytransition.in.ua/wp-content/uploads/...
The research highlights the problem of barriers to the development of small RES power plants and describes which tools of the 4th EU energy package can be effectively used in Ukraine. This information was presented at an open event and communicated to the Government in the form of positional statements.
We have made a decision to work with cities. Due to the situation with the pandemic, communication and work with municipalities in general were complicated, but we managed to start cooperation with Mykolaiv. In particular, on a constant basis we provide information support to the Mykolaiv Center of Energy Efficiency and communicate with the Energy Department.
Moreover, the NGO «Ecoclub» within the Coalition framework conducted an online training «Energy School of Deputies and Managers», which consisted of 6 seminars and lasted for a month. The total number of registered participants is 128, 82 out of which are current and potential deputies of local councils, 46 are representatives of executive bodies of local councils. The task we have set ourselves is to increase the number of municipal delegates with a background in the sector of climate, energy efficiency, RES and sustainable development.
Also, the leaders of the Ukrainian communities, who are potential supporters of the Coalition, receive monthly information with news and development opportunities related to the transition to 100% RES. Last year, 16 mailings were prepared and distributed to 949 communities. As a result, more than 100 representatives of local self-government bodies from different parts of Ukraine registered for the Coalition's events.
