  • Ukraine aims to reduce its GHG emissions in 2030 by 65% compared to the level of 1990 and to reach carbon neutrality by 2060.
  • Renewables should account for 25% of the country's installed capacity by 2030.
  • DTEK is the main coal producer and generator of thermal electricity.
  • Gas TSO of Ukraine was unbundled from NaftaGas as of January 2020.
  • Since 2012, electricity production declined by almost 30%.
  • Imports of petroleum products were multiplied by 7 since 2004.
  • Coal production fell by 65% between 2013 and 2020.
  • Ukraine has implemented new models for electricity and gas pricing.
  • The country has sharply raised energy prices, especially for households.
  • The government reintroduced a cap on gas prices for households in early 2021.
  • Energy consumption per capita is relatively low compared to neighbouring countries.
  • Since 2010, total energy consumption has declined by more than a third.
  • Coal consumption decreased by more than 40% over 2012-2020 to 42 Mt.
  • The country targets 12 GW of wind and solar capacity by 2025.
  • Units 3 and 4 of the Khmelnytskyi nuclear power plant are expected in 2026.
  • The Ukrainian Electricity System should be synchronised with the EU's power grid by 2023.

  • 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 produced 2.6 Mt of crude oil in 2020, covering around three quarters of its needs.

    Ukraine has a nameplate refining capacity of around 370 kb/d (18.6 Mt/year). However, the rate of utilisation of this capacity is low and only 1.2 Mt of petroleum products were produced in 2020 (-8% compared to 2019).

  • Energy Prices


    Regulated electricity prices are set by the regulator NEURC. According to the decree of 2014 on the approval of electricity tariffs by the NEURC, end-user electricity tariffs must cover the full cost and be the same for all regions. Ukraine used 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 has fallen from 4.9 toe in 1990 to 2.9 toe in 2010 and 2 toe in 2020, which is lower than the average for the EU (-34%) an Russia (-61%). Electricity consumption per capacity is around 2 600 kWh, which is lower than the average for the EU (-53%) and Russia (-59%). 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.
