Introduction

For the 2nd winter running russia has been cynically attacking Ukraine’s integrated energy system. Ukraine has survived the onslaught thanks to the efforts of the government, energy companies and emergency services with vital support from the international energy community to repair and stabilise the energy grid.

In the longer term there is a commitment that the reconstruction and modernisation of Ukraine’s energy infrastructure be undertaken using the latest global technologies with an emphasis on energy efficiency, sustainability and stimulating investment in renewable energy sources.

The 2nd Ukrainian Energy Transition Forum has been convened to once more bring together all the key stakeholders – Ukrainian officials, private and state energy companies, renewables developers and their advisors, equipment providers and financiers – to meet with their international counterparts to gain a clear assessment of the requirements and to formulate an action plan to build Ukraine’s energy infrastructure back better.

Our team has been organising Ukrainian energy and investment conferences for over 25 years, including annual energy forums in Kyiv. Our portfolio also includes Ukrainian Renewables, Gas E&P, Hydrogen and Critical Minerals Forums in London. Over 200 senior executives from 15 countries participated in last year’s Forum
