Denmark has become the first donor of the international Energy Support Fund for Ukraine
Ukraine Energy Support Fund, created in early April 2022 by the Energy Community upon request of the European Commission, has received the first donation. It came from the Government of Denmark. The donation will be used to purchase much-needed emergency energy equipment, fuels for electricity production and heating, and provide other types of support.
The Minister for Climate, Energy and Utilities of Denmark, Dan Jørgensen, said: “Ukraine’s energy sector is badly affected by the war and they have asked for our help. Denmark, in close cooperation with the European Commission and the Energy Community, has set up a system so that EU countries can now donate to Ukraine’s energy sector. This is to ensure that Ukraine receives equipment that actually fits into the energy system. Denmark will also send money and encourage other countries to contribute as well.”
