Project period
2008 – 2020
• Increase the share of energy from renewable sources in order to meet the goals of the Energy Strategy of Ukraine. The strategy foresees a significant increase in the share of green electricity by 2035. To this end, 25% of Ukraine's total primary energy supply shall derive from renewable energy sources;

• Reduce greenhouse gas emissions, assisting Ukraine in meeting its commitments under the Paris Agreement in the field of climate change prevention and adaptation;

• Provide reliable and safe working conditions for all employees;

• Prevent degradation of natural habitats and ensure the conservation of species.
Construction and operation of renewable energy facilities in Ukraine by DTEK Renewables:
• DTEK Renewables has built solar and wind power plants (SPP and WPPs) with a total capacity of 1 GW;

• DTEK Renewable's green electricity generation will ensure that 2.6 million tons of greenhouse gases (CO2-eq), will not be released into the air annually. It is the equivalent of the annual emission of 1.3 million cars;

• Almost 1,000 hectares of reclaimed land, unsuitable for agriculture, were used to install solar panels;

• DTEK Renewables has invested more than € 1 billion in the construction of solar and wind power plants and engaged the world's best equipment manufacturers to its projects;

• Production process and environmental management system are certified in accordance with international standards ISO 45011:2018 "Occupational health and safety management systems" and ISO 14001: 2015, respectively;

• DTEK Renewables carries out environmental protection measures and continuous monitoring of flora and fauna at SPPs and WPPs sites. Accordingly, the impact on ornithological complexes at the sites of WPP is monitored according to the recommendations of the Scottish Natural Heritage Foundation. Additionally, the tracking of bats abides by Surveillance and Monitoring Methods for European Bats Guidelines produced by the Agreement on the Conservation of European Bats (EUROBATS).
