Location: Ukraine, Kyiv
Company: Energy Service Union of Ukraine
Position: Head of Union
Description:

Major goals of the Union are to exercise and protect legal rights and interests of its members, public interests in the energy service sector and related spheres of public life.

Priority objectives of the Union:

  • to ensure actual involvement of its members in implementation of the state policy in energy efficiency sector and upgrade adaptation of various economic sectors to the world standards in environmental efficiency, technical and organizational and methodological regulation of energy-saving and environmental safety of enterprises and organizations   (regardless of the pattern of ownership and departmental subordination);
  • to establish conditions for professional activities of the Union members, developing and introducing principles, rules and methodologies of professional activities;
  •  to represent and defend the rights, legal interests of the Union members.

The principal goal of the Union:

 Promoting formation in Ukraine of efficient energy service marketplace:

  • to reduce state interventions in operations of economic entities;
  • to remove barriers to comprehensive development of  economic activities;
  • to organize relationship between public and local authorities, regulators, enterprises and organizations consuming energy services and those providing energy services for evaluation of state policy quality in energy efficiency and environmental safety;
  • to promote raising legal and professional awareness and qualifications of the Union members and the public;
  • to recover the Union members’ rights in the event of violation;
  • to coordinate members’ activities in achieving the goals and objectives of the Union.

The Union founders are the most reputable Ukrainian energy service and energy audit companies:

  • Energy service company “Ecological Systems” (Zaporizhya), top manager – V. Stepanenko.
  • Institute of Energy-Saving and Energy Management of the National Technical University “Kyiv Polytechnic Institute” (Kyiv), the Head – S. Denisyuk, certificate granting the right to conduct energy audits No.140 dated 29.09.10

In total, over 30 active operators in the market expressed their interest to be members. Due to the low professional level in the energy service market, I believe the quantitative indicator is not fundamental in present context.

Areas of responsibility:

  • developing ideology and principles of the Energy Service Union of Ukraine;
  • identifying goals, objectives and main areas of activities;
  • coordinating of steering committee’s activities;
  • preparing and holding of steering committee’s meetings;
