Ukrenergo focuses on application of gas generator stations and lithium-ion batteries for balancing

The Ukrenergo’s CEO Vsevolod Kovalchuk said on June 5, that in the near future the Ukrainian power system would require new 2.5 GW maneuverable facilities to ensure its balancing and increasing feed-ins from renewable power generations. According to Mr. Kovalchuk, the Ukrenergo focuses on application of gas generator stations and lithium-ion batteries for energy storage. This statement was voiced by Mr. Kovalchuk at the Conference “Renewable Energies - Energy for Peace and Democracy” in Lviv.

The Ukrainian power system should change in order to enable the bigger share of renewable energy generation in Ukraine… In 2016 we had reached 1 GW in renewable power, and project to reach 3 GW in solar and wind power generation by the end of 2019. In order to reach  7.5 GW in renewable power by 2025,  we have to commission 2.5 GW maneuverable facilities, such as  gas generator power stations(including the “green” ones working on bio-gas feeds), lithium-ion battery energy storage facilities, new hydroelectric pumped storage power plant (the later ones cannot be rapidly built), it could be energy storage facilities on solid state batteries. We focus on a combination of gas generator power stations and lithium-ion batteries, that will rapidly change the structure of power generation and balancing of power system”, said the Ukrenergo’s CEO.  

Mr. Kovalchuk also mentioned that to create 2.5 GW maneuverable facilities one would needs €2.5 bil investment.
