The optimal path forward for Ukraine’s power system
The global energy landscape is in transition, largely due to the rapidly decreasing cost of renewables. Major players are moving towards flexible and sustainable energy systems with a rapidly increasing share of renewable energy, declining inflexible thermal generation and a wider application of flexible generation and energy-storage technologies.
The recent rapid growth of wind and solar-generating capacity in Ukraine, supported by high feed-in tariffs (FITs), has put financial and technical pressure on the power system and sparked a debate about the country’s ability to sustain this trend. Wärtsilä has applied its power system modelling capabilities to offer an analysis of the optimal way forward for the country over the next 30 years.
