EUEA’s director Kateryna Polyakova participated at the European Energy Security conference, organized by leading Polish think tanks Forum Energij and European Council on Foreign Relationships in Warsaw in April. The Ukrainian energy sector was the subject of the third panel, preceded by a keynote by Vice Minister Yaroslav Demchenkov.

During the discussion on the EU-Ukraine energy partnership and cooperation, Kateryna emphasized that in the context of russian invasion, renewable energy became critical for energy security in Ukraine and for decentralization of its energy system. Also, she stated that Ukraine possesses strong potential for electricity exports already in the short to mid-term as well as resources and expertise, needed for Ukraine to become a major biomethane supplier to the EU.
