CMS Cameron McKenna Nabarro Olswang in Kyiv is pleased to announce that our law firm has recently advised the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) on improvement of energy efficiency of public buildings in Ukraine. The city of Kremenchuk in central Ukraine is the first municipality to receive funding under the EBRD’s Public Sector Energy Efficiency Financing Framework (PSEEF). EBRD will provide loan financing of up to €7.5 million and a €1.5 million grant to the Communal Enterprise “Kremenchuk Municipal Energy Service Company”. The financing will be secured by a municipal guarantee of the Kremenchuk City Council.

As an integral part of the project, a large number of Kremenchuk’s public buildings, including kindergartens, schools and hospitals is expected to undergo important energy efficiency improvements.

The CMS team was led by Elitsa Ivanova, English qualified banking & finance partner, and senior associate Vyacheslav Ovechkin, and included Khrystyna Korpan.
