Owing to help of a number of international finance and government organizations Ukrainian private companies have an opportunity to obtain a profitable credit for implementing energy saving technologies. Hotel industry may also expect receiving loans. Simplified consideration procedure for small credits – up to EUR 500 000 is used. For this purpose EBRD plans to allot EUR 150 million in total.
