Ukraine and Latvia strengthen cooperation on wind energy development

The Ukrainian Wind Energy Association (UWEA) signed a Memorandum of Cooperation with the Latvian Wind Energy Association under the slogan Supporting Ukraine’s integration into the single Western and European market, using Latvia as an entry point.

“Cooperation between our countries will not only enable setting up new energy structures of our countries without Russian gas but will also provide an opportunity for knowledge and experience exchange on wind energy development,” said the Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the Latvian Wind Energy Association, Gatis Galvins.

The associations will undertake joint activities to demonstrate the feasibility and benefits of wind technologies to a national and European audience, with both partners providing their best assets from their main sphere of activities and networks, by:

  • Exchanging information about the latest developments, main challenges and new opportunities in the wind energy field;
  • Organising international events on wind energy to maximise the public perception of wind such as conferences, workshops, exhibitions and other types of events;
  • Coordinating and exploring further possibilities of acquiring and undertaking joint projects and initiatives;
  • Regular personal meetings, including members of wind associations.

“The signing of the Memorandum of Cooperation between two wind energy associations is an important step on the way of our countries towards energy independence, decarbonisation and peace,” added Andriy Konechenkov, the Chairman of the UWEA Board.
