As the most energy intensive country in Central and Eastern Europe, Ukraine considers the experience of Visegrad Group countries with energy efficiency to be very valuable, due to the many similarities between Ukraine and these countries in terms of economics and household stock. Facing challenges to its very existence, in 2014–2016 Ukraine drastically reduced its consumption of primer energies (gas, electricity, oil, and oil products). The main reasons for this were a fall in economic activity, the annexation of Crimea by Russia, and the military defensive in the East, where a significant portion of heavy industries and mining enterprises found themselves behind the frontlines in the uncontrolled territories.
