In two years, more than 660 MW of new RES capacities were built in Ukraine

During 2022-2023, more than 660 MW of power plants operating on renewable energy sources were built in Ukraine.
This is reported by the Ministry of Energy.
"During 2022, about 312 MW of new RES capacities were built, and about 350 MW were put into operation in 2023. These are solar and wind power plants, as well as biogas and small hydropower plants," the message says.
It is noted that in 2023, about 10% of electricity was produced by wind and solar power plants, and taking into account hydroelectric power plants, the share of produced clean energy reached 20.3%.
"The Energy Strategy of Ukraine, adopted last year, provides that we will continue the course for the production of clean energy. Already in 2030, the share of RES should be at least 25% in the energy balance, and by 2050, Ukraine should achieve climate neutrality," commented Energy Minister Herman Galushchenko.
He emphasized that for Ukraine, the development of clean energy is one of the key factors in ensuring energy independence and energy security, especially in the conditions of Russian military aggression.
As reported, SE "Guaranteed Buyer" paid UAH 30.348 billion to producers of electricity from renewable energy sources in 2023. The level of "Guaranteed Buyer" payments to producers of "green" energy is: for 2023 - 60.05%, for 2022 - 55.3%, for 2021 - 99.07%.
