A Ukrainian green tariff coefficient is one of the highest in Europe. No other country in the EU has a tariff for solar energy production at EUR 14-18 cents/kWh, said Vice Prime Minister/Minister of Regional Development, Construction, Housing and Utilities of Ukraine Hennadii Zubko during the International Forum on Energy Efficiency.
"No other country has such capacities as the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant project, which is gradually turning into an investment attractive area. We can get more than 2 GW of solar energy and place a complex of networks there to generate this energy. Another promising direction for investment is the market of wind energy, which will enable the country to boost its energy independence", stressed Hennadii Zubko.
According to the Vice Prime Minister, it is important for industrial enterprises to utilize the energy available in Ukraine. This applies to wind and solar energy, energy from household waste and raw materials of the agro-industrial complex. "Among the approved laws are acts on the gas and electricity market opening up such opportunities. We must work on laws and include changes in taxation process," the top official emphasized.
