Against this background, the agency proposes to take in consider channeling funds to subsidize 30% of the cost of projects for saving and replacement of gas. "

Some experts have said that providing funds to subsidize projects to reduce gas consumption should benefit from a mechanism and by an institution. Already Mr. Volodymyr Lytvyn, vice-president of Sberbank   said that such a rule will issue one mechanism the selection and monitoring of projects implementation.

Another supporter of the project is Mr. George Geletukha, Chairman of the Bio-energy Association of Ukraine, who believes that such a project will encourage the use of alternative fuels instead of gas.
