kingdom of the nlUkraine is facing major energy challenges and biomass as a resource could substantially contribute to the supply of heat, power and fuels. Since 2014 the Netherlands has been supporting Ukraine in revealing the full potential of reliable and high-quality biobased energy production through "Dutch-Ukrainian Seminar on Bioenergy Cooperation". This year the seminar took place on the 21st of September in Kiev within the 12th “Biomass for Energy” Conference in Ukraine. It was organized jointly by the Dutch consortium "Partners in International Business - Biobased Energy Ukraine" and Scientific engineering center “Biomass” with the support of the Netherlands Embassy in Ukraine and the Bioenergy association of Ukraine. The focus of this year seminar was on use of biomass in district heating of municipalities of Ukraine. Besides the Dutch companies, the seminar attracted Ukrainian representatives of state and local authorities, DH companies, commercial companies, bioenergy and energy efficiency associations, consulting, research and legal institutions.

Bioenergy Association of Ukraine was the co-organizer of the seminar "Prospects for energy crops in Ukraine", which on June 30 was held by the State Agency for Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving of Ukraine (SAEE) jointly with the Kyiv Regional State Administration, LLC "Ukrteplo" and UkrNDIPVT named after L.Pohorilyi. The seminar was attended by over 80 participants from all over Ukraine and from Poland. The seminar was aimed at raising awareness of local authorities and community development, as well as attracting businesses to create new renewable energy sources in the form of perennial plantations of energy crops.

The seminar consisted of theoretical and practical parts and was held at the site of UkrNDIPVT named after L.Pohorilyi of NAAS of Ukraine. The seminar was opened by an advisor of the Head of SAEE Sergiy Savchuk and Chairman of the Board of the Bioenergy Association of Ukraine Georgiy Geletukha. In his speech, Georgiy Geletukha reminded the considerable potential of biomass in Ukraine, which is 29.8 million TCE. One-third of this potential by conservative estimate belongs to bioenergy crops that can be grown on unused agricultural land of poor quality, which in Ukraine is about 4 million ha. When growing energy crops on 1 million hectares with average yields of 11.5 million tons / year Ukraine can potentially replace up to 5.5 billion m3 of natural gas per year.

Presentations of the speakers (in Ukrainian)
  1. "Stimulation of natural gas substitution" — Yuriy Shafarenko, Head of the Department of SAEE
  2. "Development and Prospects of Bioenergy in Ukraine" — Georgiy Geletukha, Head of the Board of Bioenergy association of Ukraine
  3. "Experience of growing energy crops" — Iryna Gnap, Director of Agro-energy company "Salix Energy"
  4. "Energy crops in the Netherlands and Ukraine" — Kees Kwant, Senior Expert, Netherlands Enterprise Agency, Netherlands
  5. "Practical experience of the use of energy crops "- Ivan Nadein, founder of group of companies" Ukrteplo "

Public organization «Renewable Energy Agency» together with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) organized on July 5-6, 2016 the seminar "Environmental, social and economic assessment of bioenergy projects using BEFS OLT (agricultural residues)". The seminar was attended by about 60 participants, including existing and potential owners of bioenergy projects, representatives of funding organizations, research institutions and consulting companies.

The Bioenergy and Food Security Operator Level Tool (BEFS OLT) (agricultural residues) was developed within the project “Supporting Public and Private Sector Capacities in Sustainable Agricultural and Bioenergy Investments”, under the collaborative agreement between the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (UN FAO) and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).

The main purpose of the BEFS OLT (agricultural residues) tool is initial screening of bioenergy projects as to assess their environmental, social and economic performance. Hence, the assessment results provide an indication of the projects’ strengths and weaknesses and support decision making about further developments.
