Ukraine : 0,5 GW of PV plants will be installed in Ukraine this year

In 2017, 54 new solar energy projects with total capacity 488 MW will be implemented in Ukraine by the Ukrainian and foreign developers. As a result, this year, Ukraine can reach 1 GW of installed PV plants.

These data are presented in the analytical report prepared by the expert board of the 6th International Conference and Exhibition Solar Energy Industry in Central and Eastern Europe CISOLAR-2017, which will be held in Odessa on April 11-12.

According to the report, 7 projects will have capacity more than 20 MW each, 9 – more than 10 MW each. As well more than 20 projects will have capacity over 5 MW.

The main players of the Ukrainian market are companies Rentechno, Helios Strategia, US Solar, Rengy Development, Eco Optima, Paradigma Invest Group.

It should be added, last year the Ukrainian government announced plans to turn Chernobyl’s nuclear wasteland into a large-scale solar farm, which can become one of the biggest solar energy clusters in the World.

The exclusion zone covers more than 200,000 hectares and has a complete high-voltage grid infrastructure fit for renewable energy generation. The companies from USA, Canada, China, and Germany have shown interest to this project.

December 12, 2016, State Agency of Ukraine on Exclusion Zone Management (SAUEZM), coordinated by the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of Ukraine, announced the call for proposals for the construction of solar power plants and appropriate land property lease in the Chornobyl exclusion zone.

If this project will start, this year Ukraine will get an additional capacity of PV plants.

The feed-in tariffs in Ukraine are set at €0.1599/kWh ($0.18) for ground-mounted solar power plants commissioned in 2016 and €0.1502/kWh for projects implemented between 2017 and 2019.

Latest trends, legislative changes, investment and financing programs in the solar energy industry of Central and Eastern Europe are expected to be discussed at the CISOLAR-2017, 6th International Conference and Exhibition Solar Energy Industry in Central and Eastern Europe, which will take place in Odessa April 11-12, 2017.
