Engineering Anаlyst (Heat), DS-Kyіv


In April 2024, UNDP launched a 5-years Green Energy Recovery Programme in Ukraine, which is an integrated initiative designed to diversify the country’s energy mix and address the impact of the war on its outdated energy systems. Developed through extensive consultations with the Government of Ukraine, local and regional authorities, the Programme aims to respond urgently to targeted attacks on the energy sector and support its green energy recovery.

The Programme supports the National Energy Strategy of Ukraine, contributing to energy security and independence, promoting a green recovery and transition of the energy sector, and facilitating further synchronization with the EU energy markets. This effort builds on UNDP’s engagement in energy system reconstruction and recovery, leveraging partnerships and lessons learned from the “Winterization Support to Ukraine” project.

Aligned with the UN Ukraine Transitional Framework 2023 and UN Winterization plans, UNDP is providing immediate support to national and local governments to repair energy infrastructure, ensuring critical services to war-affected populations. The Programme focuses on distributing generation sources, decentralizing the power system, and increasing the share of renewable energy sources to reduce reliance on coal generation and reduce CO2 emissions.

The Programme will enhance access to energy from decentralized renewable sources, foster economic empowerment, and improve public governance in the energy sector. These outputs will contribute to Ukraine’s nationally determined contributions (NDCs) towards the Paris Agreement, aimed at reducing global greenhouse gas emissions.

Sustainable energy solutions will be introduced through pilot projects, aligned with the UNDP nexus approach to risk reduction and resilience enhancement in war-affected communities. By boosting energy supply and decentralizing the energy system, the Programme aims to reduce reliance on humanitarian aid for essential services in these areas.

In this context, UNDP Ukraine is recruiting a highly qualified and experienced Ukrainian professional for the post of the Engineering Analyst (Heat) to support the activities of the Green Energy Recovery Programme with a focus on energy security.
