Greencubator report and strategic plans

  1. 1. Uniting peoplefor energy-smart country We thank for support:
  2. 2. greencubator OUR MISSION Greencubator aims to change the energy patterns of Ukraine by • promotion energy efficiency • building energy awareness • fostering innovations • promoting green growth and sustainable choices
  3. 3. greencubator OUR OBJECTIVES - CIRCA 2010 Spread the word ‣ educate the media on new energy strategies Raise the energy-savvy generation ‣ team up with educators Bring investments ‣ Promote business opportunities in green energy Inspire innovations ‣ Make start-ups / innovators visible and recognized

  5. 5. greencubator SUPPORTED BY UNITER Project “National Energy Awareness Campaign “Greencubator” • UNITER supported an initiative with bold vision and projects but not oficially registered at the moment • NGO “Academy Of Strategic Sciences” was our operational vehicle • Original project duration: December 2009 - December 2010 • No-cost project extension approved till March 2011
  6. 6. greencubator FROM OUR PROPOSAL TO UNITER “ Project key points: We believe that lack of public control and involvement in the energy sector originates from underestimations of energy role for personal safety and wellbeing by Ukrainian citizens. This comes from low energy awareness and absence of energy culture. Today a vast majority of Ukrainians realizes the problems of the energy sphere but do not try to fix it. Out approach is to stimulate their involvement ” through demonstration of successful energy efficiency cases achieved by grass-roots groups. “ ... The energy challenges [...] can be solved by enabling people, communities and businesses to build a new energy sector together. Greencubator teams aims to provide them with the necessary capacities through knowledge transfer.

  33. 33. Feedbackfrom partners and participants on our activities
  34. 34. greencubator ANNA VILDE, GLOBAL CARBON First, what I should mention – are the "Green issues" of “Investgazeta” and “Delo”. It caused significant raise iof interest among the readers (many of our clients, who represent large companies, read “Investgazeta”). Second – Greencubator has created a community of energy efficiency stakeholders and just right people, that was very important to me personally. Mailing lists created by Greencubator are useful both to share information and to be aware of energy efficiency sector news.
  35. 35. greencubator OLEKSANDR KANIVETS, SOFTPROM / AUTODESK It is really interesting to cooperate with the Greencubator team. For me it a wealth of valubale connections at events organized by Greencubator. For example, I’ve met Yurij Favorskij of KPI at Greencubator’s confernce in Rivne, we started cooperation, which resulted in our company making the large software donation to KPI on May 26.
  36. 36. greencubator OLEKSANDR MAZURCHAK, 1ST DEPUTY HEAD OF KYIV CITY ADMINISTRATION I think that the work started by Greencubator is extremely important and I am pleased that National academy of public administration as well as other educational institutions support this work.
  37. 37. greencubator OLENA MASLYUKIVSKA, KYIV MOHYLA ACADEMY First, you create an informative environment, creating a cohort of people and organizations, united around one idea. To me you are performing the role of a hub, you created some movement in energy efficiency sector. I want to mention intersectoral character of communications you have organized! It is very important for ideas to exchange. This is a unique, may be the first time in Ukraine, at least in the area of my work.
  38. 38. DENYS MIROSHNYCHENKO, PEREYASLAV-KHMELNYTSKYgreencubator STATE PEDAGOGIC UNIVERSITY Thanks to Greencubator we have learned a lot in energy efficiency and started to implement energy saving technologies more boldly. Greencubator can ofter provide a helpful advice in it. We’ve done significant progress since Greencubator`s first conference at our univercity […] We have developed an energy saving and energy efficiency program till 2014.
