Fossil Energy – Ukraine
Yesterday Ukraine became an association country of the International Energy Agency (IEA).
This closer cooperation will help Europe face what is expected to be a hard winter amid an energy crisis tied to Russia’s war in Ukraine.
Ukraine became the 11th association country of the organization, joining Argentina, Brazil, China, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Morocco, Singapore, South Africa and Thailand. There are 31 full member countries, including most big economies such as the U.S., United Kingdom, Germany, France and Japan.
Executive Director of the IEA Fatih Birol and Minister of Energy of Ukraine German Galushchenko signed the documents in the capital of Poland.
The move will allow Ukraine to work closer with the IEA on data-sharing, analysis and best practices as well as managing energy demand.
