Leading industry experts are convinced in the prospective of the renewable energy industry of Ukraine

Top Quote At the renewable energy industry market, the positive expectations prevail, in relation to the short term prospective of the new industry development in Ukraine. Despite of the fact, that still, there are not many realized infrastructure projects in the country, for the last year, a number of projects have transferred from the «paper» stage to the stage of practical realization.

  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) September 24, 2011 - Those are the conclusion of the Renewable Energy Center «FuelAlternative». At the 3rd International Renewable Energy Forum, REF-2011, Fuel Alternative will present a detailed analysis of the alternative types of fuel and energy market, and the prospective of its development.

    The biggest growth rates of new capacities are related to the solar power engineering. If at the beginning of 2011, the general established capacity of solar systems, working under «green tariff» amounted to 2.535 megawatt, it's expected that it will exceed 100 megawatt by the end of 2011.

    «It is hard to forecast the market at such an early stage, but we expect, that the total established power will have a triple digit in megawatts, by the end of this year. We are in the process of completion of the 80-megawatt project now», in accordance with Dr. Johann Harter, executive director of the ActivSolar, the section partner on the solar power engineering of the REF-2011 Forum. At the forum, the company will present its achievements and plans, regarding the development of the Ukrainian solar power engineering market.

    Colleagues from Russia, in addition to that, state the development and growing attraction of the Ukrainian renewable energy market.

    «For the last several years, we have observed a dynamic development of the solar power engineering market in Ukraine. Plus, investments are directed both at the formation of the raw material base of the sector, production of mono and polycrystal silicon, and directly at the solar power plants. This fact makes 3rd International Renewable Energy Forum REF-2011 interesting both for potential investors and specialists of the solar power engineering sphere and representatives of the legal and executive branches of power, from a position of getting acquainted with the experience of realization of some assistance program of the solar power engineering in Ukraine. I'm convinced that the Forum will play a role of platform for demonstration of the current development status of the sector in the CIS and local fruitful contacts», says Andrew Kotenko, member of the board of directors of the Nitol Solar companies group, Russia.

    Russian specialist, together with the leading world companies of the sector, have been to the International Renewable Energy Forum for the third time, which, in their words, serves as an indicator for developing the sector in the CIS and serves as reach source of information on the recent achievements and implemented projects in Ukraine.
    This segment of the «small» hyrdo power engineering, even though is considered by the specialists of the «Fuel Alternative» as the most developed in Ukraine, still has an impressive potential of growth.

    «At the present time, it's hard to assess the potential of small hydro power engineering in Ukraine, and accordingly, market capacity, due to the changes in the conditions of use of the coastal lands (building, economic activity) and economic use of water taken from rivers. For instance, there were more than 50 small hydropower stations, with a capacity of 30 to 5000 kilowatts. According to the preliminary estimate, the hydro energy potential of small rivers in Ukraine amount to 19 billion kilowatt per hour and approximately 50 percent of the total hydro energy potential», says Mr. Jakov Blyashko, the general director of the «MNTO INSET» company, moderator of the section on small hydro power engineering of the REF-2011 forum.

    The wind power industry segment also has an impressive prospective. The key event of the year for the sector of wind energy was the launch of the first line of the wind farm called "Novoazovskiy" in the Bezimyanniy town, Novoazovskiy district, in the coastal area of Asov Sea(with a first line capacity of 25 megawatt, total capacity of the wind farm will be 107.5 megawatt) in July, 2011.

    In particular, 10 wind generators of one German company called Fuhrländer AG, have been installed at the object. Also, the Greek company called Sa Prime Energy Construction SA (sponsor of the wind power engineering section, REF-211) plans to implement the large-scale project of the wind farm construction, with a total capacity of 1000 megawatt in Pervomaysk, Razdolnenskiy, Krasnoperekopsk and Leninskiy districts of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea.

    3rd International forum on renewable energy and energy efficiency (REF-2011) will be held on 17-18th October, 2011 in Kyiv (Intercontinental Hotel). The organizer of the Forum is the Renewable Energy Center Fuel Alternative; co-organizer is the Association of the Alternative Types of Fuel and Energy Participants of Ukraine, with a support of the European Small Hydropower Association (ESHA), Solar Power Industry Association of Germany (BSW-Solar) and others. In 2010, among the participants of the REF-2010 were more than 280 delegates from 30 countries. Official support to the Forum is provided by the Supreme Council of Ukraine Committee on the issues of energy industry, Ministry of Energy and Coal Industry of Ukraine, State Agency on Ecological investments of Ukraine.

    Partners of the REF-2011 Forum are following: AsovOilCompany (forum sponsor), KPMG (brand sponsor), Beiten Burkhardt (legal sponsor), Activ Solar (sponsor of the solar energy section), Prenecon (sponsor of the wind energy section), and legal group "Dominion" (sponsor of the energy efficiency section).
