About the Energy Partnership

Germany and Ukraine consolidated their cooperation in the fields of energy efficiency, modernisation of the electricity and heat sector, expansion of renewable energies and reduction of the greenhouse gas emissions with signing a Joint Declaration of Intent. The German-Ukrainian Energy Partnership (EP) provides a general framework for political dialogue in the energy sector on both sides to make cooperation on energy and climate issues even more effective.

Germany is one of Ukraine's most important trade and investment partners. For this reason, the Federal Government maintains intensive economic and political cooperation with Ukraine, whose energy-intensive economy is in a need of modernisation due to its obsolete infrastructure and dependence on energy imports.

Various German stakeholders, including the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi), the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) and the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), are already involved in the field of energy and energy efficiency in Ukraine with several projects. The Energy partnership, managed by the German Energy-Agency (dena) in cooperation with GIZ, will support these activities, intensify the communication and foster joint exchange. The most important partner on the Ukrainian side is the Ministry of Energy.
