Integration of renewables in the Ukrainian electricity system

EU | November 2020 - February 2021

According to the Energy Strategy of Ukraine, the share of energy from renewable sources in the primary energy supply should be 25% in 2035. In relation to this, the aim of this project is to facilitate integration of variable renewables into the power sector of Ukraine, while ensuring operational security of the national energy system. Recommendations on the needed level of reserves will be provided, considering the level of variable renewables installed, capacity and generation mix of conventional power plants. Furthermore, the barriers for increasing the flexibility in the Power System are analysed.

The project will result in reports detailing the findings from the analyses on reserves and barriers.

Ea Energy Analyses has a supporting role in the project, primarily scoping the reports, providing technical assistance, knowledge exchange and recommendations, as well as project management, quality insurance and administration support. 

The project is carried out for the Danish Energy Agency and runs from November 2020 to February 2021.
