Ukraine Energy Support Fund to receive donation from first non-state institution 


The Ukraine Energy Support Fund will receive a financial donation from the Energy Regulators Regional Association (ERRA). The donation will be used to purchase vital emergency energy equipment and fuels to ease the hardship of Ukrainian people during the upcoming winter.

The Energy Community Secretariat acts as the fiduciary of the Ukraine Energy Support Fund, set up at the request of the European Commission to enable Ukraine to receive donations to finance the purchase of fuels, equipment, services and capital needed to repair energy infrastructure damaged during the war.

The Director of the Energy Community Secretariat, Artur Lorkowski, said the ERRA had become the first non-state institution to donate to the Ukraine Energy Support Fund. 

The Deputy Minister of Energy of Ukraine, Yaroslav Demchenkov, said Ukraine was preparing for the upcoming heating season, including in areas under constant shelling by Russian troops. “Еven as Ukraine’s brave energy workers on the ground continue day to day repairs, risking their own lives, we cannot do this on enthusiasm alone, when funds are limited. Our energy companies need more resources and equipment, and we are extremely grateful to all those that provide actual tangible support. This is, quite literally, assistance to every Ukrainian who switches on the lights at home,” said Demchenkov.
