In 2016, to compensate for ‘warm’ loans the Government of
Ukraine has allotted about UAH 900 million which is almost three times more
than last year.
"This program is a real tool for saving on utilities.
This year the Government allocated about UAH 900 million to reimburse for ‘warm’
loans, which exceeds almost three times the amount allocated last year. Hence,
more citizens will benefit from the state support", commented the Head of
the SAEE Serhii Savchuk.
A loan facility under
the state support program for the population, condominiums
and housing associations aimed to ensure the
implementation of energy efficiency measures, boiler replacement

the purchase of materials and equipment the UrkGazBank
issued ‘warm’ credits to the tune of UAH 3.2
The insulation of homes
has become popular among those who were granted subsidy, as they

implement energy efficiency measures; 40% -
for condominiums and housing cooperatives, as legal entities to be spent
for communal activities; 70% - to the recipients of
