Industry calls for 50% renewables for Ukraine reconstruction by 2030

July 05, 2022

The European and Ukrainian solar and wind associations have called on the leaders from both Ukraine and the EU to embrace renewables – including solar and onshore and offshore wind – and renewable hydrogen in the country’s post-war reconstruction.

The associations today (4 July) released a joint statement calling on Ukrainian and the EU leaders to set a target of at least 50 per cent renewables in Ukraine’s electricity mix by 2030 and for a dedicated “Renewables for Ukraine” vehicle as part of the joint Strategic Reconstruction Plan and the Ukraine reconstruction platform.

The target is recommended to be achieved through a combination of rooftop and ground-mounted solar, as well as onshore and offshore wind.

Renewables should be at the core of the joint Strategic Reconstruction Plan and the Ukraine, WindEurope said in a press release, adding that renewables are essential to the energy independence, prosperity, employment and peace of post-war Ukraine.
