European countries are recognized leaders in the use of public-private partnerships in project management for large-scale infrastructure projects, including those that contribute to energy efficiency in various sectors of the economy. Their experience is a useful example for Ukraine in its quest for energy independence and economic stability. Establishing partnerships with business will increase the resources of the state and promote the involvement of the private sector in the implementation of profitable and image projects for both stakeholders. The development of mechanisms and recommendations for the development of public-private partnership (PPP) should be preceded by an analysis of International experience in creating a favorable and attractive environment in which public-private partnerships can be intensified. Since energy efficiency is the key to the successful functioning of the economy of any state, it is necessary, creating the conditions for the successful functioning of public-private partnership, to develop programs and projects to improve energy efficiency, which will be implemented under the PPP on a priority basis.
