Modernisation Partnership Energy Efficiency
Measures geared to modernising energy systems in Ukrainian hospitals are implemented in an exemplary manner. With a view to achieving lasting improvements in energy efficiency at hospitals in Ukraine and given the prevailing conditions, the project proceeds on the basis of three principles: Owing to the overall constrained national budgetary situation, the energy rehabilitation strategies will focus on measures that demand low levels of investment, on optimising processes and on bringing about behavioural changes in working procedures at the hospitals. Such measures will already lead to significant savings in terms of both energy and costs and encourage the introduction of long-term energy management systems in the hospitals. Investment funds from sources such as the national budget are to be utilised in a way that results in the highest cost-benefit effect possible. With this in mind, all planned measures will in future be subjected to thorough preliminary examination. Hospitals are to gain easier access to financing options. The project will support the development of innovative financing strategies, such as energy performance contracting.
