The aim of IRENA is to accelerate the transaction of countries to sustainable use of renewable energy sources. This is a unique opportunity to attract the best world experience, technologies and investments in “clean” energy projects. Ukraine’s membership in IRENA is an opportunity to apply to the Abu Dhabi Development Fund that offers long-term preferential loans at 1-2% for a period of 20 years.
