Ukraine will save gas on hot water and heating - the Ministry of Regional Development

Ukraine will save gas on hot water and heating.

This was announced by Deputy Minister of the Regional Development of Ukraine Andriy Bilousov, the "ITAR-TASS" reports.

According to the Ukrainian official, reducing the terms of the heating season and limiting hot water supply will reduce about 13% of gas consumption, or 1.15 billion cubic meters of fuel.

"The Ministry co-ordinated the work of regional administrations to reduce gas consumption by 30%. We were able to reduce consumption by 29.6%, or 2.47 billion cubic meters of gas. This is 37.4 million cubic meters less than required", - Bilousov said.

Also, the Deputy Minister said that by optimizing heat consumption in apartment buildings, the savings will amount to 590 million cubic meters (7%).

Recall that the "Naftogaz Ukraine" calculated that for a comfortable heating season Ukraine needs to save 4 billion cubic meters of gas in the utility sector.
