  • Renewable energy in Ukraine: trends to expect in 2019

    The alternative energy industry is one of the fastest growing and most attractive sectors for investment in Ukraine. This can be explained, inter alia , by the favorable geographical conditions in Ukraine, where solar radiation is more intense than, for example, in Germany. The wind speed in this Eastern European country makes it possible to develop large-scale wind projects. Moreover, Ukraine has a huge potential in electricity production from biogas, which, in some cases, is already partially being successfully implemented.

    Perhaps the hottest topic in the energy sector at the end of 2018 and early this year is the discussion of changes to the approaches of providing state support for electric power producers from renewable sources.
