Barriers to the creation of a biofuel market in Ukraine, which are associated with wood fuel harvesting, are considered.The ways to overcome these barriers are proposed. The current characteristics of Ukrainian forests, which inflence the possibility of wood fuel harvesting, and dynamics of their changes are analyzed. The scenario of increasing the volume of wood fuel harvesting, which corresponds to the key indicators of bioenergy development of the Energy Strategy of Ukraine until 2035,
is proposed.
