The Ukraine Energy Efficiency Program is a credit line established by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development in 2007. UKEEP aims to provide targeted financing for energy saving projects in the Ukrainian private companies, which is disbursed via partner financing institutions, i.e. commercial banks. Currently UKEEP has three partner banks: Raiffeisen Bank Aval, Ukreximbank, and MegaBank.
The key benefit of the UKEEP Programme is the independent technical consulting support provided by the international and local experts, and funded by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Finance.
Small, medium, and large enterprises representing various sectors of economy are invited to apply for UKEEP financing. Decreasing energy consumption or usage of renewable energy sources for own needs are the key eligibility criteria for the projects. Learn more about criteria for clients and projects.
