Voluntary Agreement Scheme for Energy-Intensive Industry in Ukraine

Reference: The energy agencies of Denmark and Ukraine

How do you make it attractive for energy-intense industries to contribute investment capital to green transition? Viegand Maagøe is working to implement a voluntary agreement scheme for energy efficiency improvement in Ukranian industry.

How we solved the task

The State Agency for Energy Efficiency of Ukraine wishes to promote energy savings in industry. Viegand Maagøe has together with The Danish Energy Agency advised on establishing a voluntary agreement scheme for energy efficiency improvement. Through the scheme businesses will gain access to financing at attractive terms and partial investment support in exchange for saving energy.

The project includes socio-economic analysis of policy initiatives, establishing business cases for different industry sectors and preparing administrative procedures as well as tools to support implementation.

Viegand Maagøe has completed:

  • Data collection on energy consumption, energy prices and CO2 emissions in industry
  • Modelling of the potential for energy efficiency improvement on subsector level
  • Socio-economic analysis of alternative policy designs
  • Financial analysis for participating businesses
  • Application and report formats for participating businesses and financial institutions
  • Design of database for collecting implementation data
  • Workshops with nationalauthorities

Contract period: 2018 - 2019 (Viegand Maagøe)


The voluntary agreement scheme is expected to significantly increase interest from energy-intensive businesses in investing in energy efficiency improvement. This will:

  • Reduce energy consumption and strengthen competitiveness in participating businesses
  • Reduce local and global air pollution from energy production
  • Reduce reliance on imported energy
Global Goals

The project contributes to several of the 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development:
