«Association of system support for Ukrainian reforms and technologies of Low-carbon Economy» (Association) is a public union, a legal entity created in accordance with the current legislation.
The main purpose of the Association is to create a low-carbon economy and low-carbon energy in Ukraine, taking into account the current world economic development trends, in particular, taking into account the Memorandum of Understanding signed on 09.06.2017 between the Secretariat of Power Community and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development on cooperation in sustainable development which provides the measures for the countries of South-Eastern Europe and the Black Sea region, including Ukraine, aimed at supporting sustainable development on the basis of creation of low-carbon economy and low-carbon energy.
One of such main trends and a priority of development of world economy for today is the active development of renewable energy as an instrument of import substitution and reduction of energy dependence of the country.
As the priority of the state strategy for the development of high-tech industries, under the direct leadership of the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine, the state-targeted program of development of renewable energy and mechanical engineering is being started, as a component to low-carbon economy. This priority also corresponds for today to the world and European development vector and is actively supported by international financial institutions and investors.
Thus, on the initiative of the Association the Ministry of Economic Development by order of 11.09.2017 № 1313 has created a working group to develop a comprehensive program for the development of renewable energy as a component of the low-carbon economy with involvement of leading specialists and experts, including experts of the Association.
The program also provides for the implementation of another project, one of the most relevant projects for the withdrawal of the Ukrainian economy from a crisis state – “Road Map of comprehensive development of wind industry and machine building of Ukraine”, which has been approved and determined by the Government as a priority of the economic development of the state. This project is aimed at addressing the issues of transition to a low carbon-economy and low-carbon energy based on the introduction of innovative technologies for the construction of wind power plants and production at domestic factories of the wind power equipment and creation of conditions for the attraction of non-state investments.
The implementation of the state target program for the development of renewable power and mechanical engineering, as a component of the low-carbon economy, and “Road Map of comprehensive development of wind industry and machine building of Ukraine”, are the main directions of the Association’s activities.
