What we have done?
The conference Upgrade Ukraine 25th October, Berlin
Ukrainian and international participants

We have made Upgrade Ukraine conference, which gathered 100 Ukrainian and international participants, and 16 speakers to cooperate and discuss Ukraine's recovery.
The event's main goal was to create an international hub, thanks to which there is an opportunity to establish productive cooperation between representatives of Ukrainian and German businesses now, without waiting for the war's end.
We have gathered experts around such fields as:- Energy- Agro- Investments- IT sector- Charitable projects in support of Ukraine.
We have built an extensive international network of experts ready to participate in our podcast and other activities. Also, we have a network connection with partners who are ready to support us.
Upgrade Ukraine Energy
The aim of the first conference is to discuss the challenges the energy sector in Ukraine is facing and to identify opportunities for off-grid decentralised energy projects that can be applied domestically.
After the conference, our goal will be to initiate a competition for teams to participate in sustainable decentralized pilot projects within Ukraine when the war is over. A total of 5 teams will be selected and receive funding for 2 years.
WHY CLIMATE AND ENERGY FOCUS
The weaponization of energy has put every nation on alert and highlights the need for diversification of energy supplies. Ukraine’s post-war energy transformation will provide renewable, decentralized energy production opportunities. Ukraine’s above average annual amount of solar irradiation, for instance, makes it an exceedingly attractive producer of solar energy, particularly for existing industrial facilities and the growing agribusiness sector.
Our competition-challenge provides an opportunity and a framework to bring together multi-party stakeholders who are interested in providing investment and technological solutions to a decentralized energy infrastructure in Ukraine as the country rebuilds. The competitions have clear goals that can be objectively measure. We anticipate grants from USD 20 to $50 million to be awarded for this competition.
