In Ukraine, the public bodies and Local Authorities struggle with energy efficiency issues due to extended needs and limited resources. There is a need for a hybrid integrator in Ukraine. To accommodate that, this project entitled “Ukrainian 3G: Cutting-Edge, Scalable Hybrid Energy Integrator & Storage Hub for Public Facilities in Ukraine” will be implemented from September 2021 until May 2022. This project aims to facilitate the transfer, promotion and scaling up of a Polish hybrid integrator and storage hub called Ukrainian 3G®, along with a cost-effective heating system, Turbostove. The system offers simple, easy, low-cost energy efficiency boost and green technologies. This project focuses on measurable results, which is in line with Ukraine’s international obligations to adjust the economy to green requirements as described in EU policies.

Implemented by Makroterm and Kharkiv Energy Cluster, the project will provide energy efficient heating & cooling and hot water for public and private facilities in Ukraine. There will also be a Smart Energy LAB – a live workshop for leading Ukrainian architects and heat technology engineers, along with the representatives of public energy efficiency agencies and the Ministry of Education of Ukraine. That program will take place at the public facilities of Pervomaiskyi, Kharkov Region, Ukraine.

Supported by UNDP under Polish Challenge Fund and financed by the Republic of Poland, this The project uses a cost-effective heating system to boost energy efficiency, Turbostove®, with fireplace technology transfer. This project will reduce heating costs and costs of electricity in a short and long perspective and will be based on renewable energy solutions, including biomass—the cheapest renewable source of energy in the region. This project will affect and benefit Ukraine’s Local Authorities who are responsible for public buildings, especially for educational purposes, innovative technology companies and engineers who are struggling for more effective heating solutions and energy efficiency measures adjusted to local demand, and academia and university teachers involved in high education in Ukraine, who are searching for innovative solutions to be transmitted to students, being a boost for a quality engineering education.

Polish Challenge Fund has the objective to facilitate the transfer of the Polish know-how, technology, and innovative solutions in the area of green technologies and ICT to partner countries of Polish Aid such as Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine. The transfer is to help to address complex development challenges in those countries while contributing to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The project is implemented by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) through the Polish Challenge Fund, with financial support from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Poland.
