Why should the state keep payments under the “green” tariff for biofuel power plants? You can find the answer in the joint material of Oleksandr Dombrovskyi, Chairman of the Board of the Public Association “Global 100 RE Ukraine”, Georgii Geletukha, Head of the Board of the Bioenergy Association of Ukraine,  Sergiy Savchuk, CEO at the Clear Energy for Economichna Pravda.

Problems are not created by bioenergy. An imbalance in the energy system is created by solar power


We share the data for 2019: installed capacity, produced electricity, distribution of payments at the “green” tariff by type of renewable generation in Ukraine.

According to Ukraine’s Energy Strategy until 2035, the RATIO BETWEEN SOLAR ENERGY AND BIOMASS ENERGY SHOULD BE 2: 1. Now the difference in the total installed capacity is 30: 1 in favor of SES.

According to the Renewable Energy Action Plan approved by the Government, 2,300 MW of solar capacity is expected to be installed by the end of 2020.

However, at the end of the first quarter of 2020, there were already 5,576.3 MW of solar capacity. For comparison, the total capacity of biomass and biogas power plants is 98.6 MW, which is almost seven times less than the planned target.
