E5P grant to boost energy efficiency in Ukraine’s Dnipro

Patients and medical staff at clinics as well as children attending kindergartens and schools in the Ukrainian city of Dnipro are to enjoy better heating in their buildings thanks to funds provided by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the Eastern Europe Energy Efficiency and Environment Partnership (E5P) fund, to which the European Union and Sweden are the largest contributors.

The E5P fund grant of €5.5 million complements a €25 million loan from the EBRD to the municipal energy management company Dniprovska Municipalna Energoservisna Kompanya.

With the help of the joint financing, close to 100 public buildings will be refurbished to improve their energy efficiency, introduce better heating systems and create a more comfortable environment for students, patients, teachers and doctors.

The project builds on a previous joint pilot investment by the EBRD, the E5P and the Clean Technology Fund to the Dnipro municipal energy management company, which helped upgrade 33 schools and 48 kindergartens in the city.
