Change Agents for a Green Society
This initiative was supported by The New Democracy Fund through the New Cooperation Fund.
About the project
This project focuses on how to transition the Ukrainian heating system from the current fossil-fuel-based heating system to renewable energy. The project aims at creating an online resource library, a catalogue listing simple energy-saving solutions that are easy to implement. Through the project, multiple webinars are hosted discussing solutions for renewable energy transition of district heating. Furthermore, the project carries out an analysis of waste heat and geothermal heat potentials for district heating in Ukraine.
