With the ongoing war in Ukraine, more and more areas in the country are cut off the electricity supply, including hospitals and other places which urgently require access to power.
In order to help civilians, the World Wind Energy Association WWEA and the Global 100% Renewable Energy Platform Global100RE (http://www.global100re.org/), supported by Global100RE Ambassador Ruslana (https://ruslana.ua/en/), are calling for donations of equipment which can supply power independently from the national grid, after all small and stand alone solar systems including batteries, power banks etc.
A first, major donation of over 1000 mobile solar sets is expected to reach Ukraine in the coming days and will be distributed in the country. This donation has been coordinated by the Berlin based Access to Energy Institute. (www.a2ei.org)
In-kind donations will be disseminated in Ukraine with the help of and coordinated by Ruslana Lyzhichko, former Ukrainian winner of the Eurovision Song Contest, democratic activist and Ambassador for 100% renewable energy.
Ruslana: “With your help, people in my country who are suffering so much in this war can for the first time get access to power without relying on foreign forces. Even in these difficult times, we strive for peaceful, for democratic renewable energy which allow Ukrainians to become energy independent.”
Franz Alt: “I support this appeal because it means we are helping the people of Ukraine to continue to have access to electricity in these terrible times of war.”
Dr. Andriy Konechenkov, Chairman of the Ukrainian Wind Energy Association and WWEA Vice President: “The people in our country need now all the humanitarian aid that is possible, and energy equipment is urgently needed.”
