In 2020, the number of households in Ukraine installing solar panels and using clean electricity increased to 22,000 families, it is up 48% from the previous quarter of 2019. This was reported in the State Agency on Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving of Ukraine.
Total installed capacity is 553 MW, which is 60% more than in the previous quarter, and investments amounted to about 450 million euros. There are over 6.5 million households in Ukraine. That is, only 0.3% of them have installed solar cells. For example, in 2014, there were only 22 such families.
“Households that have installed solar power stations are fully supplied with electricity and are the most energy efficient, since they sell excess of produced "clean" energy is sold at a "green" tariff, which since 2020 is 16.26 cents / kWh”, wrote on the Facebook page Yurii Shafarenko, Director of the Renewable energy sources department of State Agency on Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving of Ukraine.
According to the estimates of IB Centre, distributed rooftop solar PV systems in residential, commercial and industrial sectors will grow; and this trend will lead to changes in the grid system. The rapidly increasing ability of consumers to generate their own electricity offers new opportunities to electricity suppliers.
By 2025, distributed solar power generation is expected to increase by 320 GW worldwide, which will make up almost half of the total PV facilities’ growth over the next 5 years.
In the context of CISOLAR 2020 Trade Show devoted to innovative energy technologies, a workshop will be held by the Solar Academy for small solar power stations’ installers. The training will take place in the conference hall of the M82 exhibition center (82, Mezhyhirska Street, Kyiv).
This business event will help their participants to expand their theoretical knowledge and practical skills on operating a solar power station, uncover the hidden potential in a solar station, the installers will get step-by-step guidelines on how to increase solar power generation and profit of a plant, and recent changes in Ukrainian legislation and current legal issues in the industry will be discussed.
Among the event's speakers are owners and directors of major Ukrainian companies, government officials, engineers and heads of design and engineering as well as investors and lawyers working in the field of energy, construction and investment.
