The investments financed by WB loan to the government of Ukraine contribute to energy efficiency at the supply and demand-side levels and include in particular heat and power production modernization, DH networks modernization and individual heat substations deployment. Finland is contributing with 150 000 USD to support implementation of District Heating project, especially to give technical assistance to Ukrainian Project Implementation Units in formulation of technical specifications, tendering, and contract finalizing.
