In the overall electricity market structure, RES contribution is not large – in 2018 the production volume of electricity was only 2%. However, the development of the sector is moving pretty fast, until the fossil fuel-fired generation does not increase its capacity. During 2018, 742.5 MW of new capacities were added in Ukraine, The most of them are SPPs (646.6 MW from the overall 742.5 MW were SPPs).
