More than € 4 billion needed to implement the National Emission Reduction Plan

Ukraine needs more than € 4 billion, or more than UAH 130.5 billion (at the current NBU forex rate) to implement the National Plan for Reduction of Emissions from Large Combustion Plants (NPRE), which envisages modernization of all and closure of some depreciated TPP and CHP units.

That was announced on April 1, 2021, by Serhiy Kolesnikov, a member of the PJSC Centrenergo’s directorate, with reference to the data of the working group of the Ministry of Energy.

"According to preliminary estimates by the working group under the Ministry of Energy, more than € 4 billion are needed to implement all the measures enshrined down in the NPRE," he said.

The member of the directorate also explained that the practice of European countries shows that this money is taken either from budget and state programs or is included in tariffs.

Kolesnikov also noted that in 2-3 years, it would be difficult to ensure the legal operation of TPP units with a total capacity of 12 GW, which is currently needed by the power system for balancing, precisely due to the need to meet all environmental requirements. He also noted that the Ministry of Energy has a working group that provides options for the NPRE.

To a question from an ExPro correspondent, Kolesnikov said that about UAH 1 billion for each unit would be needed for dust and sulfur treatment at the Centrenergo’s TPP power units.
