The Fund facilitates investments related to green growth and climate change mitigation and adaptation globally, with a particular focus on Eastern Europe, Baltic Sea, Arctic and Barents regions. The Fund provides project grant financing in the following areas: renewable energy and waste-to-energy; power and heat generation; district heating networks; energy efficiency in buildings and industry and other related area.
To qualify for grant funding, projects must: be innovative; build on well-known and proven technology; be cost efficient; increase energy efficiency on system, sub-system or component levels; be environmentally sustainable; be financially sustainable after grant support; be examples of best practices and best available technologies (BAT); and be replicable.
Grant funding can be provided to both public and private demonstration projects and is available for disbursement until the end of 2021.
The Fund is financed by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland and managed by NEFCO. The local coordinator is the State Agency on Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving of Ukraine (SAEE)There are blending opportunities of the grant with NEFCO's other financing tools.
Project owner's contribution is required, however technical assistance, such as e.g. consulting and software, can be supported with a grant up to 100 pct cent of the cost. (Source: Finland Ukraine Trust Fund, May, 2019) Contact: Finland Ukraine Trust Fund

Under previously awarded contracts, Lockheed Martin Energy has implemented and is developing numerous innovative projects, including an energy retrofit of the U.S. Embassy in Nicaragua that delivers savings of more than 50 percent in energy use and cost.
Lockheed Martin Energy is a line of business within Lockheed Martin that delivers comprehensive solutions across the energy industry to include demand response solutions, energy efficiency, energy storage, nuclear systems, tidal energy technologies and waste-to-energy generation.

The waste-to-energy technology, which allows organic wastes to be instantly gasified rather than combusted or incinerated, was developed and patented by Associate Professor Paul Dauenhauer in the University Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Sciences.
Once created, syngas can be used to power generators to make electricity and to create heat. Syngas is also a raw material component that can be substituted for traditionally produced chemicals -- including petrochemicals -- in the creation of industrial and household products and a variety of other fuels. It is especially valuable as a fuel in areas where natural gas is not readily available.
