“A total of $51 million will be allocated for the whole program, in particular, EBRD will allocate at least $40 million,” he said at a press conference, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

The program is estimated for three years. The FIN-TeCC will assist Ukrainian companies in investing into the energy saving technologies.

Under this program, some companies will be able to receive grants worth 5-25% of the cost of new technologies, but not more than $1 million.

The EBRD also expects that as a result of this program, companies will become more resource-efficient and reduce costs on energy resource
