At the online workshop, the financial mechanisms of SES development for own consumption were discussed.
“The issue of solar energy development in Ukraine is a pillar for Ukrgasbank, regardless of what happened on the market last year, as well as regardless of the change in the feed-in tariff for the worse. We, like most financial institutions, have a ban on financing projects under the feed-in tariff, so this year we are focusing as much as possible on financing solar stations for our own consumption. Demand for these projects is quite high” said Oleksiy Savin, Director of the Eco-Department of Ukrgasbank.
For his part, Artem Semenyshyn, director of the Solar Energy Association of Ukraine, said: “As of now, not all financial mechanisms are involved in Ukraine to stimulate the construction of PV plants for own consumption. At the same time, we will see increased interest and growth in demand for these services. Therefore, the purpose of our meeting with Ukrgasbank is to create an acceptable financial product both for the industry and the bank”
