CBA Experience in Energy Saving Presented at European Energy Saving Week in Kyiv

In April 2011 Ukraine joined the European Energy Saving Week. A series of activities were organized in Kyiv, Lviv, Poltava and Kovel on 11-15 April. These activities were devoted to discussing and popularizing energy efficiency and renewable energy sources.

The main theme of the Week was energy efficiency and renewable energy sources; however, the majority of events were dedicated to the European energy market and ‘smart’ power grids. In Ukraine, the key event of the week, organized by the EU and partners, brought together government representatives, environmental organizations, business environments and the international community to increase awarenes, and enhance the dialogue on sustainable energy.

Experience of the Community Based Approach to Local Development Project in introducing energy saving technologies in rural communities was presented at the conference ‘Energy Efficiency: Experience of Ukrainian and European Cities’ on 14 April.

On 15 April the Project was presented to the public at an open media event.

European Energy Saving Week has been held since 2005 and is considered to be one of the main events in the sphere of sustainable energy in Europe. It is aimed at demonstrating the advantages of energy conservation and energy saving technologies, and the economic benefits that they result in to officials, business and the general audience.
