USAID’s energy programming in Ukraine helps improve energy efficiency and decrease dependence on energy imports. To enhance energy security, the USAID Energy Security Project (ESP) is working on increasing domestic energy supply by promoting private investment in electricity generation from renewable energy sources (RES).
ESP’s RES strategy focuses on support to the Government of Ukraine, Parliament and other key stakeholders to improve planning and legislation for successful RES development. In addition, ESP is helping Ukraine fulfill its RES-related EU integration obligations, which are laid out in the Third Energy Package.
- Assist Ukraine to fulfill its obligations to the EU on RES development.
- Decrease electricity costs in Ukraine by developing a well-planned, competitive RES-based electricity procurement program.
- Help Ukraine avoid high costs and technical problems related to RES development and integration of variable RES-based electricity into the grid.
