Ukrainian and German renewable energy industry vow to strengthen cooperation
Clean Energy Wire
Associations from the German and Ukrainian renewable energy industry have agreed to work together more closely to speed up the energy transition in both countries. The associations, including German BEE and Ukraine’s 100 RE UA, signed a memorandum of understanding with the aim of strengthening ties “to support the energy transition in both Ukraine and Germany, by exchanging best practices and by learning from each other.” The goal is to develop a "RePowerUA" plan based on the experience and provisions of the European Commission's "RePowerEU" plan to reduce dependence on Russian fossil fuels and speed up the energy transition — and on the practical experience of the renewable energy sector in Germany, they said.
European and global cooperation is key for the successful transition to climate neutrality. As an early starter, EU member state Germany’s energy transition is watched closely for valuable lessons on weaning a major economy off fossil fuels. German renewable companies are “ready to support the development of Ukrainian energy production to 100 percent renewable in all sectors,” said BEE head Simone Peter.
