We are pleased to invite you to the event “Increasing the energy resilience of municipalities as a basic level of Ukraine’s energy security”.
Russian missile strikes last fall and winter targeted thermal power plants and distribution substations of Ukraine’s energy infrastructure. As a result, communities lived under conditions of emergency power outages. The operation of critical infrastructure facilities, such as hospitals, water utilities, and heating facilities, was threatened. These challenges created a demand from municipalities to improve the reliability of energy supplies. As a result, Ecoclub received more than 300 requests from Ukrainian communities for assistance deploying renewable energy sources.
Ecoclub works with communities to integrate heat pumps into district heating systems. We have selected 10 facilities and developed 11 preliminary feasibility studies for installing heat pumps in district heating systems. The conclusions in the documents show that such projects are promising, even given the current level of energy prices. The partner communities are ready to install heat pumps but are looking for additional funding sources due to their cost.
How can communities improve the reliability of electricity and heat supply? What are the challenges and opportunities for developing renewable energy in communities? What are the approaches communities can take to improve district heating?
These and other issues will be discussed at the event “Increasing the energy resilience of municipalities as a basic level of Ukraine’s energy security”.
When: July 13, 10:00-15:00.
