Title: Improving Ukraine’s Energy Security: the Role of Energy Efficiency

Abstract

This report analyzes the link between energy security and energy efficiency in Ukraine. The paper explores the roots of high energy intensity of the Ukrainian economy and its dependence on imported energy resources. In recent years, the Government of Ukraine has linked energy security with energy efficiency, which indicates a paradigm shift in the country’s energy strategy. Using broad statistical data, the report explores the major options for Ukraine in improving its energy efficiency. Special attention is paid to energy consumption in the residential sector and district heating. The report analyzes recent economic, legislative, and institutional measures to promote energy efficiency and strengthen energy security. The analysis shows that Ukraine can significantly reduce its dependence on imported energy resources and avoid major energy security risks by creating an enabling environment for large-scale energy efficiency improvements in all sectors of the Ukrainian economy.
