Ukrainian Energy Ministry develops platform to assist energy sector

MOSCOW. March 2 (Interfax) - The Ukrainian Energy Ministry with the support of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development - Ukraine Stabilisation and Sustainable Growth Multi-Donor Account (MDA) has developed AidEnergy, an online platform to coordinate the flow of humanitarian aid for the Ukrainian energy sector.

"It is a 'single window' for collecting, updating and informing donors of the needs of fuel and energy companies, elaborating and confirming donor proposals, distributing the humanitarian aid and reporting," Ukrainian media reported on Thursday, citing the website of the Energy Ministry.

The creation of a unified online environment increases transparency and optimizes communication with donors and fuel and energy companies, Deputy Energy Minister Farid Safarov said.

"AidEnergy also greatly accelerates the movement of equipment by increasing the number of warehouses, allows for receiving information on deliveries promptly, and automates distribution and reporting processes," Safarov said.

Ukraine has so far received aid for the energy sector from 30 countries with a total weight of more than 5,300 tonnes, he said.
