For three months, our country has moved from 30 th to 29 th position in the world ranking of the most attractive in terms of investment in renewable energy, which publishes a quarterly company Ernst & Young.
Ukraine, ranked first in the ranking in 2011, is now ahead of European countries such as Bulgaria, Hungary, Czech Republic, Austria, Finland and other countries. In addition, our country is still the only representative of the CIS and the former Soviet Union in the rankings.
Moreover, the so-called solar index Ukraine is even higher 21-th place. This suggests that a particularly attractive is the solar energy sector.
Ukraine’s parliament in July adopted in first reading a bill providing for a significant simplification of access to the mechanism of the "green" tariff. According to analysts Ernst & Young, the adoption of this document may give new impetus to long-term development of alternative energy in Ukraine, as well as make an economically attractive renewable energy in the home, in particular, the installation of solar panels in households and, consequently, there will be new opportunities for investment.
Confirms the high potential of Ukraine and international research company Macquarie Research, which forecasts that Ukraine in 2012 the capacity of solar power plants of 400 MW — 600 MW. In this case, by 2016, our country will be built and put into operation new PV installations with total capacity of 1.8 GW.
Macquarie Research analysts believe that solar energy will develop in Ukraine intensive than in countries such as Bulgaria, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Austria, Portugal, Holland, Switzerland, Sweden and Denmark. For example, the Crimean solar park "Perov" is one of the largest in the world.
