As of today, the solar energy demonstrates a positive dynamics in Ukraine. Since the beginning of 2017, among all the objects commissioned for the production of “clean” energy, exactly the solar power stations are the most powerful: 60 MW out of total 66.1 MW. This was stated by the head of the State Agency on Energy Efficiency Serhii Savchuk at the opening of the Second International Conference “Green Economy Modernization: challenges and opportunities for the development of solar energy.”
According to Serhii Savchuk the law 514-VIII, adopted in 2015, contributed to the market revival of the renewable electricity production and solar energy development, improving the system of “green” tariffs.
In 2016, most renewable energy projects were also aimed at the creation of solar energy facilities. They accounted for 99.1 MW out of 120.6 MW of new facilities, working on “green” tariff.
In the first quarter of 2017, there was more than fivefold increase in the households’ quantity, which have installed solar panels: from 244 (as of early 2016) to 1309 households.
