Energy Efficiency in Buildings and Advanced District Heating

Venue: Kiev, Ukraine

Dates: 23 March 2015

Organiser: The International Energy Agency (IEA) / State Agency on Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving of Ukraine (SAEE)

Background

The overarching aim of the workshop is to provide an opportunity for a selection of key international and Ukrainian stakeholders to discuss action options to achieve energy efficiency gains in the buildings sector, including the district heating networks, as well as sharing experiences on regulatory and policy measures that may facilitate energy efficiency technology deployment in Ukraine..

Drawing on the findings of the previous event on 5 November 2014 and building on the fruitful ongoing dialogue and co-operation between the IEA and the SAEE, this workshop aims to the following objectives:

  • to improve the knowledge base regarding opportunities in Ukraine to pursue improvements in district heating systems along with reduced space heating demand through energy efficient building envelopes;
  • to discuss the policy, economic and technology drivers that could foster market uptake of EE technologies in Ukraine;
  • to share information about experiences and lessons learned through EE projects for the building sector and district heating

The event was organised by the IEA in the framework of the International Low-Carbon Energy Technology Platform in collaboration with SAEE. The organisers wish to convey sincere thanks to the Government of the United Kingdom for the financial support, and to the European-Ukrainian Energy Agency (EUEA) for the collaboration with communication and information activities relating to the event.

In 2015 two training opportunities were provided to Ukrainian stakeholder in the framework of the Energy Statistics Course in Paris on 2-6 March and during the seminar on Energy Efficiency Indicators for Policy Formulation in Kiev on 24-25 of March.
