Konstantin Gura, acting Chairman of the State Energy Efficiency Agency, held a meeting with the Chairman of the Marubeni Corporation office in Ukraine Ashitani Yasuhiro, with whom he discussed the possibilities of Ukrainian-Japanese partnership.
As you know, "Marubeni" is one of the largest and most famous Japanese corporations. It has over 130 branches in 68 countries around the world. Energy occupies an important place in the broad profile of the company, incl. renewable energy sources. The company also does not lose interest in the Ukrainian market in this area.
In turn, Konstantin Gura said that Ukraine, like the entire progressive world, is heading towards decarbonization of the economy. Therefore, the development of energy efficiency and green energy remains a priority. And there are enough resources and opportunities for this.
The parties paid special attention to the prospects of such areas as bioenergy and hydrogen energy.
“The average annual production of“ green ”hydrogen in Ukraine may be at least 5.5 billion cubic meters by 2030. At the same time, our country has another advantage - one of the largest gas transmission systems in Europe. This potential for the production and use of hydrogen in Ukraine is also confirmed by the results of a study carried out jointly with UNЕCE ", - K. Gura explained.
