"Green" energy and energy efficiency in Ukraine are the sectors that are developing despite the crisis, said the head of the State Energy Efficiency Agency Kognstantin Gura. According to him, in 2020 alone, numerous "green" projects were introduced, which are estimated at 1.2 billion euros.
In his speech at the XXII international scientific and practical online conference "Renewable energy and energy efficiency in the XXI century" K. Gura noted:
“Today the world has chosen the course of decarbonization, the fight against climate change and its consequences. Among the instruments is the development of green energy and energy efficiency. In this context, science, new discoveries, ideas and projects stimulate progress, which is urgently needed for Ukraine. ”
According to the Communications and Public Relations Department of the State Energy Efficiency Agency, hydrogen is a new round of global energy development in the world. Having significant resources, Ukraine has been identified as a priority partner of the EU in the production and use of hydrogen. According to experts, the potential for the production of "green" hydrogen in the country is 5.5 billion cubic meters per year until 2035. Research conducted jointly with UNECE confirmed Ukraine's capabilities in this area.
"The topic of renewable energy sources, decarbonization and, taking into account our RES capabilities and the potential for the production of" green "hydrogen, changing the model of the Ukrainian economy to an export one, has become not only an economic, but also a political issue and one of the priorities of the Ukrainian leadership", - noted the President of the Energy Association "Ukrainian Hydrogen Council" Alexander Repkin during his welcoming speech.
