"Over EUR 2 billion was invested in more than 2,500 MW of new renewable energy capacities commissioned in Ukraine over the first nine months of the current year," reads the report.

In particular, over the reporting period the following new facilities were installed: with a total capacity of over 2,000 MW – solar power plants; almost 400 MW - wind farms; about 120 MW - solar power plants of households (over the first six months of the current year), 24 MW - biogas plants; 13 MW - small hydropower facilities; 4 MW - biomass facilities.
