Ukraine: The Danish Energy Agency hosts successful workshop for Ukrainian delegation

Ukrainian and Danish participants participated at a workshop hosted by the Danish Energy Agency from the 15th-16th of March. The visit is part of the Ukrainian-Danish energy cooperation, which supports Ukraine in strengthening their energy planning and policy.

As a part of the Ukrainian-Danish energy cooperation, the Danish Energy Agency (DEA) held a workshop on 15th-16th of November. The focus at the workshop was on energy efficiency in industry, more specifically on monitoring energy efficiency at industrial sub-sector level. Also experiences on energy efficiency in Danish industries including the food sector were shared at the workshop.

The discussions focused on energy and economic data, definitions and indicators for energy efficiency, institutional set-up, experiences with the use of energy management systems in both Ukraine and Denmark and concrete approaches to energy efficiency at the enterprise level. It is intended that the results of the discussions at the workshop will contribute to the drafting of a methodology for monitoring energy efficiency in the industry.

The bilateral energy cooperation between Denmark and Ukraine is centered on the Ukrainian Danish Energy Centre (UDEC), which is established in the Ukrainian Ministry of Energy and Coal Industry in Kiev.

Besides UDEC, a number of institutions participated in the workshop including the State Agency for Energy Efficiency and Energy Savings (SAEE), the State Statistics Service of Ukraine (SSSU), the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) in Kiev and Statistics Denmark.

The energy cooperation between Ukraine and Denmark aims to ensure improved data for energy supply and consumption in order to enable Ukraine to create a long-term framework for energy planning and policy. The cooperation covers technical support to the Ukrainian governmental administration within the six main topics:

1. Methodology of long term forecast modelling for national energy balance.
2. Methodology for greenhouse gas registry and UNFCCC reporting.
3. Methodology for monitoring energy efficiency at industrial sub-sector level.
4. Methodology and tools for analysis of integrating renewable energy in regional grids.
5. Methodology and software for energy scenario analyses.
6. Analysis of options for increased use of biomass and biogas in the heat sector.

The workshop primarily addressed the third topic.

Welcome to Danish Energy Agency!

The work of the Danish Energy Agency involves matters relating to energy supply and consumption, as well as Danish efforts to reduce carbon emissions. The Agency is also responsible for Danish building policy and promotes more sustainable building with regard to energy consumption, use of materials and economic issues.

The Agency is responsible for the entire chain of tasks linked to energy production and supply, transportation and consumption, including energy efficiency and savings as well as Danish national CO2 targets and initiatives to limit emissions of greenhouse gasses. The Agency supports building-policy initiatives to increase the productivity and quality of building as well as the operation and maintenance of buildings, with focus on sustainable building. The Agency also collaborates with the building sector to establish a good framework for the industry.

The Danish Energy Agency was established in 1976, and is an agency under the Ministry of Climate, Energy and Utilities.
