Ukraine has good chances of becoming energy independent by 2020.

Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman said this in an interview with the Obozrevatel online media outlet, the Governmental portal informs.

"Our goal is to produce 20 billion kWh by 2020. Although last year we consumed 33 billion kWh. Therefore, here is also the question to the private gas producing companies. In addition, the energy saving measures should be taken. We should produce as much gas as we consume. For this, we need to do two things: produce more and consume less," Groysman said.

According to the Head of Government, the use of serious energy-saving technologies will help reduce consumption.

"In fact, we are already reducing gas consumption, but there is still much to do. I hope that a completely new mechanism of the State Energy Efficiency Fund will be launched in autumn. This tool will allow us carrying out modernization in the residential sector systematically," Groysman said.
