EUEA Board members: Mats Lundin, Chairman of the EUEA Council, Director of Celynx AG, Alper Tuncher, Managing Partner of EMSOLT Investments, Max Lebedev, Co-Chairman of the EUEA Solar Energy Working Group, GOLAW Partner, participated in the Ukrainian Renewable Energy Forum in London on June 24, 2019.

Ukraine’s renewables sector is attracting unprecedented levels of investment in large-scale projects with major domestic business groups being joined by international strategic investors from Norway, Canada, the UK and Spain, amongst others.

With a planned switch in the Summer from the green tariff to an auction-based quota system, there is a sense that the timing for investment in the sector is right, as Ukraine looks to raise the share of renewables in its energy mix to the ambitious levels outlined in its National Energy Strategy.

The Ukrainian Renewables Forum in London has been convened to bring together current renewables project developers in Ukraine, both local and international, with leading renewables financiers, advisors and project sponsors from the UK, Europe and North America.
