A high-level Ukrainian delegation comprising policy makers, investors, civil society and city officials visited Stockholm on invitation from World Bioenergy Association for a 2-day study trip during October 23 - 24, 2018. The study trip included a 1-day event on ‘Sweden Ukraine Bioenergy Cooperation Forum’  followed by site visits to bioenergy installations. The forum was organised in cooperation with the Embassy of Ukraine in Sweden and Swedish Bioenergy Association.

The Sweden Ukraine Bioenergy Cooperation Forum was attended by both Swedish and Ukrainian stakeholders in the bioenergy and renewable energy sector. The forum was an opportunity to exchange ideas and best practices of sustainable development of biomass resources to produce electricity, heating and transport fuels. Separate sessions in the forum focussed on already existing cooperation in energy, bioenergy development in Sweden and Ukraine, technological solutions for efficient conversion of biomass and waste to energy, and projects and financing for the development of bioenergy in Ukraine.

From Bioenergy association of Ukraine the event was attended by: the head of the Board of the Bioenergy association of Ukraine – Georgii Geletukha, Head of Supervisory Board – Volodymyr Maistryshyn and Board Member – Ivan Nadein

Committee meeting

On June 6, 2018, the Fuel and Energy Committee held a round table on the topic "Prospects for creating an electronic trading system for biofuels in Ukraine". During the discussion, the Head of the State Agency for Energy Efficiency and Energy Efficiency of Ukraine Serhiy Savchuk, together with the Chairman of the Board of the Bioenergy Association of Ukraine, Georgiy Geletuhoy and USAID Municipal Energy Reform project director, Diana Korsakaite, presented the concept of the introduction of biofuels e-commerce.

Such a platform will concentrate a large number of sellers and buyers of biofuels and create significant competition, which, as a result, should lead to a decrease and equalization of prices for biofuels and an improvement in its quality.

EU4Energy Vienna Policy Forum Bioenergy for HeatHead of the Board of UABio Georgii Geletukha took part at the EU4Energy Vienna Policy Forum: Bioenergy for Heat on 24 April, 2018 along with other officials and experts from the 11 IEA for EU4Energy countries. Previous forums in Astana, Minsk, Kiev and Odessa examined renewable energy policy more broadly, system integration and renewable heat. As a follow-up to the Kiev heat forum, this event focused on bioenergy barriers, drivers and best practice. It included presentations from the European Commission and European bioenergy associations, as well as several country case studies.

Globally, bioenergy is the largest renewable energy source and especially important in the heat sector. In Georgia, 90% of rural households depend on wood energy which is generally combusted at very low efficiency. This has led to the unsustainable exploitation of the country’s forestry resources forests. However, this is likely to change with the country having recently joined the European Energy Community. New renewable energy targets and a new forestry code provide a more optimistic outlook for the future use of bioenergy in the country and protection of forests.
