The Minister of Energy of Ukraine Herman Galushchenko discussed with the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Federal Republic of Germany to Ukraine Anka Feldgusen the priorities of the Ukrainian-German energy partnership.
Anka Feldgusen stressed that Ukraine has significant potential in the energy sector for mutually beneficial cooperation, including on projects for the production and transportation of hydrogen.
Herman Galushenko confirmed the importance of the development of hydrogen energy and, in this context, the prospects for using the infrastructure of the gas transmission system of Ukraine.
The parties identified the possibilities for further implementation of projects for the transformation of coal regions, the development of hydrogen energy, energy efficiency and decarbonization.
Separately, the parties discussed the process of synchronization of the unified energy system of Ukraine with the European energy system ENTSO-E.
“Synchronization with the European power system is what we are implementing in the near future. The decision initiated by the Ministry of Energy to ban the import of electricity from the Russian Federation and Belarus is one of the steps to accelerate this integration, ”said German Galushchenko.
