In 2019, DTEK RENEWABLES provided financing to more than 40 social projects in Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhzhia, and Kherson Regions. This allowed the communities, in the territory of which the company’s wind and solar power plants are located, to modernize the local infrastructure and improve the living conditions of people.

DTEK RENEWABLES has allocated more than UAH 12,3 million to the development of social infrastructure, UAH 4,6 million to energy efficiency projects, and about UAH 2,6 million to the healthcare and mini-grants.

As a socially responsible company, DTEK is committed to the sustainable development of the territories and supports the projects aimed at increase of the regional competitiveness and improving the quality of life in the localities where the company operates.

“We strive to be a reliable partner for our communities not in words but in deeds. In 2020, we will continue to invest in infrastructure development. DTEK Renewables will financially support the implementation of projects within those community development programs that has been approved earlier and will increase investments in the mini-grants competition DIY Community, so that residents can initiate those projects that are important for them,”- said Anton Mishin, Executive Director of DTEK RENEWABLES.

Among the most significant projects of the company’s social partnership programme were:
