German RES associations set to strengthen cooperation on Ukraine’s post-war green transition

German renewable energy industry associations held a series of meetings with their Ukrainian counterparts last week (February 27 – 2 March) to discuss the main obstacles facing the renewable energy sources (RES) markets in Ukraine and Germany and plans for further joint action, the Ukrainian Wind Energy Association (UWEA) announced on Saturday (4 March).

The meetings took place within the framework of the Business Scout Fund (BSF) project, participated by the leaders of the UWEA, Association of Solar Energy of Ukraine (ASEU), Bioenergy Association of Ukraine (BAU) the Public Union Global 100 per cent RE Ukraine, the German Renewable Energy Federation Bundesverband Erneuerbare Energie (BEE), the German wind energy association Bundesverband WindEnergie (BWE), the solar association Bundesverband Solarwirtschaft (BSW) and the biogas association Fachverband Biogas (FvB).

The BSF project seeks to build closer ties between the Ukrainian and German renewable energy associations aimed at “transferring knowledge internationally and mutually between RES associations, exchanging experiences on national energy transitions and the local deployment of RES technologies,” the UWEA said.

“Memorandum of Cooperation between German and Ukrainian umbrella organisations – the German Renewable Energy Federation and Global 100 per cent RE Ukraine, should be our next step. Cooperation between national renewable energy associations will be an impetus for accelerated deployment of green technologies in Ukraine and will contribute to the creation of a new, decentralised energy system of Ukraine based on renewable energy sources,” said Andriy Konechenkov, Chairman of the UWEA Board.

The German government has been “very supportive” of the project, the UWEA noted. During the talks between the Ukrainian and German industry associations, representatives of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action, Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, and Federal Foreign Office department on Foreign Policy on Energy and Decarbonisation, emphasised the German government’s readiness to facilitate Ukraine’s energy transition to new, exclusively green technologies.
