Structure of consumption of energy resources of Kiev municipal economy is:
- natural gas – 83%,
- of coal – 11%,
- other types of energy – about 6%.
Kyiv largest consumer of gas.
Equipment urban transport and engineering infrastructure 55-60% is in rundown and dangerous condition. Accounting for housing and communal services of produced and consumed energy is only partially.
Due to the shortage of energy resources and continuous growth in their prices, Kyiv actively is taking steps to energy efficient modernization of municipal infrastructure. Measures to reduce energy consumption in the city has unsystematic nature and is therefore ineffective.
Existing directives and programs of the city: City energy plan “Regional Energy Efficiency Target Programme for 2011 – 2015 years for the Kyiv City”, “Regional Program of modernization of Heating Systems of Kyiv in 2011 – 2015 years” and city target program “Hot Water in Kiev” in 2011 – 2015 years according to conclusions of the audit are uncoordinated, contain distorted information and are not suitable for use in practice.
Taking into account the above, solving the acute problem of energy efficiency we see with the help of creating long-term energy strategy of the city by 2035.
