Restructuring FIT will not affect biomass – Buslavets

The Minister of Energy of Ukraine Olha Buslavets in an interview with Radio Liberty said that the direction of biomass in Ukraine was not developed, so restructuring of FIT will not be affect it.

“We did not talk on the topic of biomass support because it is not developed in our country. I believe that there is a lot of potential for the development of this particular renewable energy in Ukraine. And there are those conditions that were then. Unfortunately, today both biomass and producers of solar and wind energy are suffering a lot from non-payment by the market for their electricity,” the Minister said.

Recall that bioenergy capacities in Ukraine are built only at 20% of the planned until 2020. The Ministry of Energy released data according to which at the beginning of June 2020 bioenergy capacities in Ukraine amounted to 182 MW, while the National Action Plan for renewables was supposed to put into operation 80% more - 950 MW for the period until 2020.

Earlier it was reported that the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine signed a Memorandum of Understanding with investors on 10 June to resolve problematic issues in the field of renewable energy.
