Conference: “District heating reform: the use of heat pumps”

The number of district heating customers in Ukraine has halved in recent decades. This has been driven by imperfect government policies, a lack of proper maintenance, growing gas debts of district heating companies, and low tariffs. Consequently, this has led to worn-out networks with heat losses of up to 20-30%.

Should Ukraine abandon district heating? What European experiences can Ukrainian municipalities adopt?

These and other issues will be discussed at the conference District Heating Reform: Use of Heat Pumps.

When? May 15th, from 11:30 to 17:00
Where? Online and offline in Kyiv
For whom? Representatives of local governments, relevant government agencies and utilities, journalists, business and industry experts, and all interested parties.
