This analysis includes a comprehensive Ukraine energy market report and updated datasets. It is derived from the most recent key economic indicators, supply and demand factors, oil and gas pricing trends and major energy issues and developments surrounding the energy industry. The report provides a complete picture of the country situation, dynamics, current issues and future prospects. With market data and continuous follow-up of markets news, this report brings clear and concise insights with which to tackle national energy challenges and opportunities. Browse the tabs below for a detailed table of contents, the list of graphs and tables, and details on the data files.


  • Before the war, Ukraine had ambitious targets for 2030: a reduction of GHG emissions by 65% compared to 1990 levels and a share of renewables of 25% in the power capacity.
  • DTEK is the main coal producer and generator of thermal electricity.
  • Gas TSO of Ukraine was unbundled from NaftaGas in 2020.
  • Since 2012, electricity production has declined by more than a quarter.
  • Electricity prices for households were increased by 250% between 2015 and 2017.
  • The government introduced a cap on gas prices for households in 2021.
  • Total energy consumption declined by more than a third between 2011 and 2020.
  • Coal and nuclear represent more than half of this consumption.
  • Final consumers are replacing natural gas with electricity.
  • The country will have to rebuild the infrastructure destroyed by the war.
  • Before the conflict, the country aimed to reach a capacity of 12 GW of wind and solar in 2025 and to start units 3 and 4 of the Khmelnytskyi nuclear power plant in 2026.

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Energy supervises the energy sector through several departments (oil and gas, electricity, coal, nuclear power).

    The Ministry of Environmental Protection and Natural Resources oversees climate change policy and provides licences for oil and gas field development, among other tasks.

  • Energy Companies


    The gas sector is dominated by state-owned company Naftogaz,which was reorganised into public joint-stock companies in 2012.

  • Energy Supply


    Gas production has remained roughly stable at around 20 bcm since 2004 (19 bcm in 2021). Imports declined by 11% in 2021 to 8 bcm, i.e. 30% of its gas needs. Since 2016, Ukraine has stopped importing gas directly from Russia. In 2020, around 43% of the imported gas came from Slovakia, 29% from Germany, and 9% from Poland.

  • Energy Prices


    Regulated electricity prices are set by the regulator NEURC. Ukraine uses a three-step pricing model (also called "increasing block tariffs") where the rate per kWh increases as the volume of consumption increases.

  • Energy Consumption

    Ukraine's total energy consumption per capita fell from 4.9 toe in 1990 to 2.9 toe in 2010 and 2 toe in 2021, which is lower than the average for the EU (-35%). Electricity consumption per capacity is around 2 800 kWh, which is lower than the average for the EU (-51%). It dropped from its peak level of 4 400 kWh in 1990.


  • Issues & Prospects

    The country will have to rebuild the infrastructure destroyed by the war (estimated at over US$105bn as of May 2022) and accelerate its projects of higher integration with EU countries. Most of the projects described in this section are likely to be delayed due to the ongoing war.

The Ukraine energy market data since 1990 and up to is included in the Excel file accompanying the Ukraine country report.
It showcases the historical evolution, allowing users to easily work with the data.

Key Data included in the excelsheet:

  • Economic indicators: Annual historical economic indicators, energy security, energy efficiency and CO2 emissions.
  • Supply indicators: Annual historical reserves, capacity, production and external trade (imports(+) exports(-) balance).
