Time: July 11, 2022

The European and Ukrainian solar industry associations have called for Ukraine's post-war recovery to be based on renewable energy. The association also urged Ukrainian leaders to set a target of at least 50% renewable energy generation by 2030.

SolarPower Europe, the Ukrainian Solar Energy Association and the wind energy trade group said that to achieve this, EU and Ukrainian policymakers should establish a technology and investment partnership, as well as a vehicle for "Ukrainian renewable energy" as part of Ukraine's reconstruction.

"By removing Europe's and Ukraine's dependence on Russian fossil fuels, Ukraine and the European continent can be freed from the influence of energy as a geopolitical lever," they wrote in a joint statement to the assembly, which was attended by EU Energy Commissioner Kadri Simson , Ukrainian Energy Minister German Galushchenko also attended online.

The association calls for the 50 per cent renewable energy target to be achieved through a combination of rooftop and ground-based solar panel, onshore and offshore wind.

Artem Semenyshyn, CEO of the Ukrainian Solar Energy Association, said: "We see that solar power supports the resiliency of the Ukrainian grid. Flexible solar reduces the vulnerability of the energy supply to attack. In parts of Ukraine, it is solar that lights up the lights. ."
