USAID leads efforts to decrease energy dependence and CO2 emissions in Ukraine by reducing waste and inefficiency in central heating systems.
USAID energy programs improve Ukraine’s energy efficiency and reduce the country’s critical dependence on energy imports. USAID works with Ukrainian leaders to reform Ukraine’s extremely energy-intensive municipal heating sector by strengthening the legal, regulatory, and institutional frameworks necessary to improve heating services. USAID also assists Ukraine’s efforts to create a social safety net to keep heat affordable to vulnerable populations.
