Ukraine has joined the Net Zero World initiative, which will help get access to the expertise of the U.S. Department of Energy for the possible implementation of pilot projects on decarbonization, the Ukrainian Energy Ministry has reported.

"Through its participation in the initiative, Ukraine will have access to the expertise of 17 research laboratories of the U.S. Department of Energy for the possible implementation of pilot projects on decarbonization. Ukraine is an equal partner of the initiative, offering in-depth cooperation in nuclear energy that will help provide Europe with affordable energy without carbon emissions," the report reads.

The Net Zero World Initiative was presented as part of the COP26 UN Climate Change Conference in the format of a panel discussion.

Earlier reports said that more than 40 countries, including Ukraine, have agreed to phase out their use of coal-fired power, the dirtiest fuel source, at the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow. Major coal-using countries, including Canada, Poland, Ukraine and Vietnam, will phase out their use of coal for electricity generation, with the bigger economies doing so in the 2030s, and smaller economies doing so in the 2040s.
