An estimated thirty million citizens across 25 regions of Ukraine are at high-risk this winter as temperatures plummet to -20C (-4°F) in late December through March.

Under these circumstances, relying on centralized heat and power supply systems is not only risky, but impossible.


Russian attacks against Ukraine have heavily damaged most thermal power generation and two thirds of the autotransformers. The military has concentrated its attacks on Ukrainian power facilities, fuel storage depots, and waterworks.

50% of the entire energy
infrastructure HAS BEEN permanently destroyed.

Ukrainians are preparing to endure a winter, that, for tens of thousands will prove deadly,
if there are not adequate interventions.

The Ukrainian government is rationing electricity consumption, using an unreliable schedule of rolling blackouts as the working grid reaches capacity. Damage to the Ukrainian centralized system of water heating has already seriously affected all 25 regions in Ukraine stretching across the country from west to east, denying civilians electricity, heat, and water. Nearly every area of Ukraine has been shelled, severing power lines, and smashing windows, making heating even more difficult.

In late November, Russian attacks cut off essential power to the country’s nuclear power stations, forcing all four into high-risk mitigation procedures controlled by Russian forces. The Nova Kakhovka hydroelectric dam is also at risk. If breached, it would flood some 80 communities and destroy the region’s water supply. Russian gas has been cut off and even schools and hospitals are losing power.

Ukrainian cities and towns need to move towards more decentralized energy systems to provide heat and power to their inhabitants. In the meantime, Ukrainian local authorities must ensure that they have alternative systems of heat and power generation for public premises which are also used for emergency shelter such as schools, stadiums, libraries, and hospitals.

From two to five million Ukrainian households routinely lose electricity
after just one morning of Russian air raids.


The ANTI-Freezz coalition

The ANTI-FreeZZ Coalition was founded by Alicia Eastman and Oleksiy Tatarenko to provide Ukrainian cities and towns across all 25 regions of Ukraine with decentralized and mobile renewable energy system solutions, to identify and supply heat, power, and water to people in urban areas through the 2022/2023 winter season, and source winterized clothing and camping gear for worst case situations.

All coalition members work or have worked for or with, a company, NGO, charity, or institution with experience and pathways to humanitarian aid, crisis management and logistics expertise and networks, or access to green energy solutions.

Hard winter clothing
& bedding

Hard winter clothing and bedding. This solution provides hard winter clothing and sleeping bags for a family of three. It is mainly purposed for just liberated towns and cities where all energy infrastructure has been destroyed by Russian troops before retreating. Hence, people are living in houses with no heating.


Solar power generators
& biomass ovens

Solar power generators. This solution addresses the needs of families living in multi-apartment buildings where diesel generators or biomass ovens cannot be installed due to safety reasons. One 2KW generator can cover the basic power needs of one family. Most often, people need light, a refrigerator, coffee grinder, hair dryer, TV, router and charging devices. If they have natural gas for heating, that's enough for 24hrs.

Biomass ovens. Multifuel 4.5KW stoves can work on different types of biomass. Most often used type is dry wood. Unlike solar power generators biomass ovens serve a need of producing heat rather than power. Their main use is in standalone houses in rural areas where gas or centralized heart supply got disrupted. One oven can serve the needs of one family living in a standalone house. The cost of this solution is roughly the same as cost of solar power generator.


Battery storage
containerized solutions

Containerized battery storage. Containerized battery systems are 1-3MW solutions that can serve the needs of the whole multi-apartment building or a hospital. The portability, compactness and ease of installation of battery systems means they can be easily installed in carparks or other areas adjacent to key facilities such as hospitals and community centres, complementing or replacing diesel generators. The benefit of this type of solution is that it can be utilized after the war is over to balance power grid or continue serving the needs of a hospital.
