The Prime Minister promised to finally agree with renewable energy producers on Monday

On Thursday, May 14, the second meeting of Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal and the acting Minister of Energy and Environmental Protection Olha Buslavets with representatives of companies working in the field of renewable energy has been held. This was reported by the press service.

Denys Shmyhal noted that during the crisis in the energy sector, Ukraine cannot afford to have the most expensive "green" energy in Europe.

“The issue is price. In a country with such a level of poverty we cannot have the most expensive “green” energy in Europe. We are all in the same boat. It can’t be like this, when the state is losing, the budget is losing, and we are paying a higher price for “green” energy. We do not want to limit investments, we want to understand the value of this energy. This is responsibility to the country,” he said.

Following the meeting, the parties agreed to finalize the Memorandum by the Ministry of Energy and Environmental Protection as soon as possible.

On Monday, May 18, it is planned to hold a final meeting and discuss the final version of the document.
