Kyiv authorities intend to bring own municipal enterprise Kyivteploenergo to the thermal energy market in Kyiv, the press service of Kyiv City State Administration has stated.
"Kyivteploenergo is intended to become a full-fledged player in the capital thermal energy market. The company will be engaged in maintenance of heat networks and equipment, ensure supply of heat and hot water to Kyiv residents...
