17 May 2016

2016 will see the breakthrough and modernization of Ukraine’s “green” energy. This opinion was expressed during the roundtable dedicated to the progress in the implementation of the National Renewable Energy Action Plan.

The event was organized by the Parliament Committee on Fuel and Energy Complex, Nuclear Policy and Nuclear Safety, DiXi Group think tank, MPs and experts.

“Though the implementation of the National Renewable Energy Action Plan is supposed to be completed by 2020, we cannot postpone the implementation process until the last months”, said Olena Pavlenko, President of DiXi Group. In her opinion, the best option would be to set interim objectives and achieve them.

 “Apparently, the world is changing. In this changing environment, Ukraine should move forward”, said Oleksandr Dombrovskyi, the First Deputy Head of the Committee. “I’m talking about a system that should motivate the development of renewable energy in Ukraine.”

Ruslana Lyzhychko, Member of the Parliament of the 5th convocation, also spoke of the motivation system. The singer proposed to create an energy saving fund in Ukraine.

“The Government, the Parliament, investors — all must be motivated”, she said. “This will unite us. We’re sailing in the same boat named “Ukraine”. We have a chance now that we must use.”

Ruslana told the present about her own energy-efficient smart house as an example. “I’m following the sun and the wind. I can now earn saving energy. And this is clean and wonderful money”, said the singer.

Let us remind you that in October 2014, the Cabinet of Ministers approved the National Renewable Energy Action Plan. According to that document, by 2020, Ukraine must achieve 11% share of renewable energy sources in its overall energy balance.
