The one that is not financing the energetic efficiency finances Gasprom

The gas wars between Russia and Ukraine, especially the last hard round, made the society, the state and the industrial field change their views on the issue of saving the energetic recourses and the renewable energy sources. Otherwise, the native economics will not have any perspectives, because the prices for the hydrocarbon ones will continue to grow. And moreover we dont have now our own ones the Ukraine now is supplied with the native energetic resources only for 10-12%.

The head of the National Resource Saving agency of Ukraine (NRSA) Igor Cherkashyn:

We recently created the State programme of the production and use of biological types of fuel and all the profile ministries approved it except the Ministry of finance. Although all the future expenses will return together with large profits, the officials hurry to direct the budgets into control of the solving of the tough problems of the state.

The above mentioned program provides the change of the natural gas into the biological types of fuel. According to the experts calculations NRSA, giving only UAH 2,5 billion, will be able to substitute 5 billion kilolitres of nature gas and this annually will provide the economical effect that equals to UAH 4,5 billion. By the way, the prime cost of the 1 unit of energy, obtained from the biological mass is 2-4,5 times lower then the cost of the nature gas.
