Ukraine’s Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman has held a meeting with the leadership of the U.S. Department of Energy regarding the direction of deepening cooperation in the energy sector.
“The energy sector reform is now one of the priorities for the government. The tasks on the agenda are as follows: to open access to the energy market for new companies, to lower prices through real competition, to increase the share of alternative energy sources, such as, for example, hydropower, and to promote energy efficiency”, he said.
During the meeting the parties discussed the preparation of Ukraine’s energy system for the winter season, as well as the support for energy efficiency projects in Ukraine.
“We already have a two-year experience of successful cooperation and new tasks for its continuation”, Groysman added. (Interfax/Business World Magazine)
