Managing partner and head of Energy practice, Dr. Oleksiy Feliv, participated in the Ukrainian Energy Transition Forum which took place on April 20, 2023, in the UK.
Having gathered more than 200 attendees offline, at the Simmons & Simmons office in London, the event brought together key stakeholders – Ukrainian officials, private and state energy companies, renewables developers and their advisors, suppliers and financiers – to meet with their international counterparts to gain a clear assessment of the requirements and to formulate an action plan to build Ukraine’s energy infrastructure back better.
During three sessions the distinguished speakers have addressed the issues of the damage caused to the energy infrastructure of Ukraine during the war against Russia, the situation in Ukraine’s renewables industry and action needed to stimulate investment into it, as well as ways to facilitate Ukraine’s advancement towards becoming the key supplier of hydrogen to the European markets.
War-related risk insurance, financing opportunities already available and to be developed, technology and digitalisation of the energy sector in Ukraine have also been on the agenda.
Backed by INTEGRITES, Simmons & Simmons and DTEK as official sponsors, with the Embassy of Ukraine in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and Ukrainian Hydrogen Council as official partners, the forum was organized by Strategy Council.

This sector has the top priority in Ukraine’s rebuilding plan which is going to be green and inclusive. We are looking forward to starting some pilot projects still during the war.”
