In this section of our site you will find up to date information on the renewable energy market of Ukraine, new technologies and trends, as well as be able to read selected interviews and learn the views of experts in the field of energy efficiency and renewable energy sources (with an emphasis on issues related to solar energy).
The global energy revolution is now in full swing. "We are in the middle of the global revolution in the field of renewable energy sources (RES). Investments in RES continue to grow, mainly in developing countries, and since 2004 the whole world has invested $2.9 trillions in clean energy sources.
Invest in RES projects is beneficial - this is confirmed by global analytics. Having passed a difficult period of its inception, the renewable energy sector of Ukraine today has attractive investment prospects and retains considerable potential for further growth in the coming years.
Renewable energy in the world is accelerating, the price for electricity received at RES plants is steadily falling. How much? What are the forecasts? How does this relate to energy derived from fossil fuels? In mid-January, 2018, IRENA disseminated a report on the cost of renewable energy and published a short-term forecast for 2020-2022 on the weighted cost of electricity produced by photovoltaic (PV) and CSP-stations (solar energy technologies), taking into account current data at contract and auction prices around the world for 2017.
"Active consumers" of energy, which are now often called "prosyumers" (from producer + consumer), which both consume and produce electricity, can radically change the power system. The "activity" of prosecutors may reduce their electricity bills, which may subsequently create problems for traditional energy producers and network operators. Is it so?
How to make the transition from the current model of energy organization to the extended use of renewable energy? How to ensure the transition to a share of RES in the energy sector > 50% or higher? By what actions successful in the "green" sense of the country carried out the restructuring of their energy and ensured the priority of "green" sources?
Fines for imbalances on making of electric power by solar power-stations come into effect in Ukraine from 2020. In that behalf problem of generation forecasting and question of fines minimization for inaccuracy of such prognostications become actual again. Forecasting becomes a decision instrument for cost-justifiable integration of resources of variable renewable energy (VRE), such as wind and solar energy, into local, regional and national grids. How in the global scale they forecast generation from solar and wind stations, that is strongly related to changes of weather, that becomes more unforeseeable lately?
