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.
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?
Development of electric power storage systems fully changes models of co-operation between small private solar electro-generating stations and energy market all over the world. The idea of overall energy supply from an environment up to complete self-sufficiency continues to agitate minds of futurologists for creation of the future harmonious society model. However lately these ideas are implemented right in front of our eyes due to development of solar PV generation technologies and storm-like penetration of RES in energy segment all over the world.
Short analysis of world tendencies of investments in renewable energy sources (RES) 2004-2016 and 2016 to 2015 comparison on the basis of statistics, presented in 2017 by UN Environment, Bloomberg New Energy Finance, IRENA, Financial Times.
People interested in harvesting the sun’s energy, can now participate in a unique program – the Sol Partners Cooperative Solar Farm. The PV Farm is located in Brighton, and members can lease solar panels for a 25 year period and receive credit for all the power generated by their panel. One of the major advantages of the program is that United Power will maintain the solar farm – the customer only pays for the cost of the panel. It is anticipated that one 210 watt panel will produce about a 3% return on its investment or approximately $32 per year in electricity credits.
