Energy Saving Potential Structure

Energy Saving Potential Structure

Technical (technological) component of the energy saving potential:

  • increasing efficiency of production, conversion, transport and consumption of energy resources, and, correspondingly, scaling down the energy content of goods and services by introducing advanced energy efficient technologies and implementing energy saving measures.

Structural component of the energy saving potential:

  • changing macroeconomic proportions with a view to reducing energy consumption levels;
  • reducing the ratio of energy intensive sectors and industrial facilities and transport by developing scientific-intensive sectors and production facilities with low energy and raw materials intensity.

In their turn, the structural and technical (technological) factors depend on intersectoral and internal sectoral changes in the national economy.

Given the technical (technological) and structural factors, the total energy saving potential of the Ukrainian economy will be 318,360,000 tons of standard fuel based on the base-case scenario of economic and sectoral development, including:

  • 175,930,000 tons of standard fuel due to sectoral technical (technological) factor;
  • 22,130,000 tons of standard fuel due to intersectoral technical (technological) factor;
  • 61,650,000 tons of standard fuel due to sectoral structural factor;
  • 58,650,000 tons of standard fuel due to intersectoral structural factor.
