NEURC approved the report of NEC Ukrenergo on the assessment of sufficiency of generating capacity in 2020
The National Energy and Utilities Regulation Commission (NEURC) approved the Report of the NEC Ukrenergo on the assessment of sufficiency of generating capacities in 2020, which analyzes several scenarios for the development of the Ukrainian energy system.
That was reported by the press center of NEC Ukrenergo, with reference to the corresponding decision of the NEURC of June 16, 2021.
According to the NEC Ukrenergo, in the future RES will have to partially replace electricity from coal-fired power plants, which are projected to reduce their electricity production by almost 12% by 2031. The NEC Ukrenergo forecasts a decline in the growth rate of RES capacity, slashing by 16% in 2022, down to 2.4% in 2031.
In particular, the transmission system operator pointed to the need to install at least 1 GW of fas start generation capacity and 0.5 GW of energy storages systems by 2031.
"At the same time, in order to maximize the production of electricity from RES, and, accordingly, to minimize its limitations, it is advisable to build at least 2 GW of fast start generation capacity," the press center said.
