High level Round table discussion: Renewables to power post-war Ukraine


04 Jul 2022 10:30 to 12:00





Event Description

4 July 2022, 10:30-12:00h

Ukraine's post-war reconstruction should be based on renewable energy. Decarbonization of the Ukrainian economy with renewables at its core will ensure Ukraine's independence, prosperity, employment and peace. To achieve these goals, a real technological and industrial partnership between Ukraine and EU will be of great importance.

Ukraine has made significant progress in renewable energy in recent years. By the end of 2021, the share of RES in national electricity production was over 8%. Currently, all projects that were already in the development and construction phase have been put on hold.

The Energy Community countries, including the Ukraine, are currently discussing 2030 Renewable targets with the European Commission. The event brings together high-level policymakers and stakeholders to discuss the European Commission RES target for Ukraine and the roadmap to decarbonization with renewables at its core.

The event is jointly organized by WindEurope, SolarPower Europe, the Ukrainian Wind Energy Association and the Solar Energy Association of Ukraine.
