Ukrainian Ecology and Natural Resources Minister Ostap Semerak says that the development of renewable energy companies is a way to the full energy independence of Ukraine.

The minister stated this when commenting on the results of his meeting with Lviv-based ЕСО Optima Company.

“Ukraine, along with traditional energy, is actively working on the development of renewable energy. The introduction of renewable energy production will give an opportunity for our state to receive full energy independence," Semerak said.
