The Ukraine Energy Support Fund receives the first donation

Following the signature of a Fiduciary Agreement between the Ministry of Energy of Ukraine, the Energy Community Secretariat and the Ministry of Climate, Energy and Utilities of Denmark, the Ukraine Energy Support Fund has received the first donation from the Government of Denmark.

The donation will be used to purchase much-needed emergency energy equipment, fuels for electricity production and heating and provide other types of support.

“Ukraine’s energy sector is badly affected by the war and they have asked for our help,” said the Danish Minister for Climate, Energy and Utilities, Dan Jørgensen. “Denmark, in close co-operation with the European Commission and the Energy Community, has set up a system so that EU countries can now donate to Ukraine’s energy sector. This is to ensure that Ukraine receives equipment that actually fits into the energy system. Denmark will also send money and encourage other countries to contribute as well.”

The Minister of Energy of Ukraine, German Galushchenko thanked the first donor for answering his country’s call for emergency support to the energy sector.

“On a daily basis, my colleagues in war-affected regions restore over and over electricity grids and gas supply networks,” he said. “We are grateful to all our partners who provide us with the necessary equipment so we can bring electricity, heating and water to thousands of Ukrainian families faster.”

The Ukraine Energy Support Fund was set up by the Energy Community Secretariat at the beginning of April to counteract the impact of the Russian invasion and enable governments and international financial institutions to provide emergency financial support to the Ukrainian energy sector.
