Working Group to implement the requirements of the Energy Community Directive 2006/32 / EC and 2010/31 / EU in communal energy

Location: Rivne, Ukraine

Dates: 15.04.15 – 15.06.15

Donors to the action: HEINRICH BÖLL FOUNDATION

Objectives and results of the action: The project aims to promote the consideration of the requirements of the Energy Community Directives in local and national policies through the organization of a working group.

The creation of a working group was combined with the training “Implementation of the Energy Community Requirements: Local Context” for local energy managers, which was supported by the Friedrich Ebert Foundation. The training took place on May 14-15 in Kyiv. Participants were able to obtain knowledge from the best national experts in the areas of energy management, energy efficiency and self-governance. The mailing list of the working group currently includes 35 people. The created working group was expanded after the completion of the training by energy managers, who revealed a voluntary desire to work in it.
