  • The country liberalised the residential gas market in 2020.
  • Renewables should reach 70% of the power mix by 2050.
  • DTEK is the main coal producer and generator of thermal electricity.
  • Gas TSO of Ukraine was unbundled from NaftaGas as of January 2020.
  • Ukraine stopped importing natural gas from Russia in 2015.
  • Energy production has been deeply affected by asset destruction in Eastern energy-rich regions.
  • Ukraine is implementing a very aggressive policy to eradicate energy subsidies.
  • The Government has sharply raised household energy prices.
  • Sharp decrease in the total energy consumption since 2010.
  • The civil war is causing dramatic damages and losses in energy assets throughout the country.
  • The Government will complete units 3 and 4 at the Khmelnitsky nuclear power plant in 2023-2024.

  • 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


    Ukraine produces a small and decreasing amount of crude oil, that covers 60% of its needs (2.6 Mt in 2019).

    Ukraine has a refining capacity of 250 kb/d. However, the rate of utilisation of this capacity is low (around 30% in 2019).

    In 2019, around 95% of petroleum products consumed in Ukraine were imported.

  • Energy Prices


    Between 2017 and 2018, gasoline and diesel prices in US$ increased by 35% and 48%, respectively, owing to the depreciation of the national currency and an increase of excise taxes. In 2019, prices remained roughly stable.


  • Energy Consumption

    Ukraine's total energy consumption per capita used to be rather high (4.7 toe/cap in 1992), but dropped sharply to only 2 toe/cap in 2019.

    Electricity consumption per capacity is around 2 600 kWh, which is less than half that for Russia. It dropped from its peak level of 4 400 kWh in 1990.


  • Issues & Prospects

    Because of Russia's annexation of the Crimea peninsula in 2014, Ukraine has lost an estimated US$300bn worth of energy assets and energy reserves/resources. This includes the loss of 18 oil and gas fields; more than 1 200 km of gas pipelines; and an underground gas storage facility.
