Green energy is one of the most innovative, promising and rapidly developing industries, both in Ukraine and globally. Annual technically achievable potential in this field for Ukraine is estimated at 64 million tonnes of oil equivalent (Mtoe). The government has established an effective mechanism to support power production from renewable sources: there is a lucrative “green” feed-in tariff in Ukraine enacted until 2030 and designed to facilitate investment in renewable energy sector. Today the market conditions in this industry in Ukraine are among the most attractive in Europe.
At the current stage of the technology development solar generation is particularly interesting business, with global volumes growing by 20-25% annually. The level of solar activity in Ukraine is comparable with that of Germany, and new developments in the production of solar panels make this business even more attractive for investors.

In 2017, the company launched the first stage of Dymerska 6MW solar photovoltaic power generation facility, while its designed installed capacity is to total 50MW. This will be the largest solar power generation in Kyiv region that will supply electricity to 26,000 households. The construction is to be completed in 2018. Equipment for the station is provided by Jinko Solar, the world’s leading manufacturer of solar PV modules.
