Integration of renewables in the Ukrainian electricity system

EU | November 2020 - May 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 was 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 were 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 were analysed.

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

Ea Energy Analyses had 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 was carried out for the Danish Energy Agency and ran from November 2020 to May 2021.
