“For years we have talked about energy security in terms of secure external suppliers and secure routes for fossil fuels – this is important but only half of the story. The secret to true energy security lies closer to home: clean, locally-produced renewable energy” – Miguel Arias Cañete, Commissioner for Climate Action and Energy.

According to the “REMAP 2030. Renewable Prospects for Ukraine” report by IRENA, biomass component will reach 76% of RES in Ukraine in 2030 and 16% of final energy consumption.

Obviously market of biomass in Ukraine is one of the most attractive for investors and developers. But where Ukrainian biomass market stands in terms of risks and propositions?
