International Journal of Global Energy Issues (IJGEI), Vol. 43, No. 5/6, 2021

Abstract: Within Eastern Europe, Ukraine in particular maintains an intense dialogue with the EU and its legal procedures, including the so-called Energy Union. This article presents an analysis from the viewpoint of two dozen professional Ukrainian interview partners, describing the current situation of implementing Renewable Energy Sources (RES) in Ukraine. This diagnosis hints at the need of all actors for future improvements within all sections and sizes of RES installations, namely small, medium and large installations and including photovoltaics, wind and biomass. Especially, information on RES in the public domain should be improved. These diagnoses provide information on how to solve the key obstacles for further RES increase, namely financial, administrative, technological and social obstacles regarding enhanced investment into RES in a former member of the Soviet sphere.
