- The volume of “production of biofuels and waste” amounted to 3786 ktoe in 2019 (as opposed to 3726 thousand tons of oil equivalent in 2018).
- The volume of “total supply of primary energy from biofuels and waste” – 3362 ktoe in 2019 (as opposed to 3208 thousand tons of oil equivalent in 2018).
- Exports of biofuels amounted to 429 ktoe in 2019 (542 thousand tons of oil equivalent in 2018).
- In 2019, 154,563 TJ of solid biofuel, 2,028 TJ of biogas, and 70,000 tons of liquid biofuel were produced.
- It should be noted that the import of liquid biofuels amounted to 70 thousand tons, and ерe export – 7 thousand tons.
- In the structure of electricity production from RES in 2019, the share of biofuels was 3.1%, while in 2018 it was 2.1%.
- The supply of primary energy from biofuels and waste in the amount of 3362 ktoe in 2019 is equivalent to the replacement of about 4.2 billion m3 of natural gas.
