The energy efficiency of Ukraine’s economy is several times lower than the EU average. With rising energy prices, the maintenance of upkeep of public facilities is becoming more expensive and requires more funds from local budgets. There are about 1.7 thousand hospitals and 10.2 thousand clinics in In Ukraine which need the energy modernization. Almost all buildings were built before 1990 and do not meet modern energy standards. According to the State Agency for Energy Efficiency estimation, after the introduction of the energy management system, they will be able to reduce energy consumption by up to 20%.
