What is our goal?
This project is designed to facilitate the sharing of Slovak energy sector reform experiences with Ukrainian partners, focusing on improving energy efficiency and the use of renewables, but also on implementing the associated EU legislation and programs, transposing them into national legislation and incorporating it into policies and learning from best practice and successful projects.
We aim to
– train Ukrainian governmental officials responsible for implementing the section of the Association Agreement that deals with harmonizing national legislation with the EU energy acquis, particularly energy efficiency and the use of renewables. The training will include lessons learnt from transposing EU legislation into the national legislations of Visegrad countries
– provide training for Ukrainian municipal leaders on EU legislation and programs, Slovak and Czech national legislation and policy to improve energy efficiency at the municipal level. This will include lessons learnt from projects successfully implemented at the municipal level in Slovakia and best practices
– raise public awareness and enhance public knowledge in Ukraine of EU policies on energy efficiency and the use of renewables, with reference to the experiences of Visegrad Four countries.
