Ukraine’s Ministry of Energy gathered on Thursday (22 February) representatives of local authorities, energy companies as well as energy project developers and international partners to present a “catalogue” of critical technologies for the Ukrainian energy sector, developed in cooperation with the Danish Energy Agency.   

‘‘The massive russian air attacks on the Ukrainian energy infrastructure provide compelling evidence of the need to decentralise the system and increase the capacity of distributed power generation. Therefore, the Catalogue includes technologies of fast-tracking implementation to develop such type of generation and improve the security of electricity supply,’’ said German Galushchenko, Ukraine’s Minister of Energy.

Minister Galushchenko also noted that the Danish-Ukrainian cooperation is once again being turned into “real actions and measures.” As he noted, Denmark was the first donor to the Ukraine Energy Support Fund, managed by the Energy Community Secretariat.

The catalogue has outlined 20 technological solutions, including onshore wind, for increasing the capacity of distributed generation in Ukraine. It provides a broad description of each technology, its vulnerability status to Russian missile and drone attacks, the timing and stages of its implementation, the impact of winter and the weighted average cost of the specific technology.

The catalogue will be constantly updated, improved and expanded depending on the specific needs of Ukraine, the Ukrainian Energy Ministry said.

“It is crucial during the heating season to enhance security of supply, and this Catalogue shows how to do this. I hope that it will be useful for the Ukrainian people and will push other countries to provide assistance to Ukraine more effectively,” said Denmark’s Minister of Energy Lars Aagaard.
