Ukraine’s government has adopted the National Action Plan for Energy Efficiency, setting a national target and a concrete plan of measures to achieve it.
By 2030 the primary energy consumption should not exceed 91.5 million tonnes of oil equivalent (Mtoe) while the target for the final energy consumption is set at 50.5 Mtoe. Therefore, it is expected to reduce energy consumption by 22.3 per cent and by 17.1 per cent (primary and final, respectively).
To achieve this goal, the National Plan includes a number of sectoral and intersectoral measures to improve energy efficiency in different sectors such as housing, transport, industry and energy.
Measures include promoting the energy efficiency of industrial enterprises and residential buildings, energy labelling and eco-design, full commercial accounting of utilities, reduction of losses in electricity transmission and distribution networks, natural gas distribution and so on.
It is also important to take into account the need to increase the level of efficient energy use at all stages: from its generation to transportation and consumption.
