As of June 2018, solar station has generated 157 MWh. The company set a "green" tariff for the sale of the energy generated to SE Energorynok.
This Naftogaz of Ukraine’s pilot project was launched in 2017. The purpose of the project is to increase the reliability and efficiency of own facilities.
According to prior estimates, July will probably be the most advantageous month for this facility. Solar station is expected to generate up to 400 MWh of electricity per year.
One of the ways to stimulate the development of alternative energy is the introduction of a "green bonds" mechanism. The EU countries have already got such experience, which, under certain conditions, in particular legislative changes, can be applied in Ukraine. At present, expert organizations agreed to develop a coherent plan to implement this mechanism in Ukraine.
This week, a bill was registered in Ireland, which, after being approved by the Upper Chamber of the Senate, will strengthen the country's refusal to further invest in fossil fuels. Such a decision will result in the country’s compliance with the Paris climate agreement.
Hybrid solar panels that will generate energy simultaneously from solar emission and rain drops are developed in China.
According to inventors, this is due to a triboelectric nanogenerator (TENG).
TENG converts mechanical energy into electricity. Сreating the prototype will take three to five years.
