Summary of support schemes

Feed-in tariff. The guaranteed buyer is obliged to buy the electricity generated by renewable energy plants at “green tariff” rates. The “green tariff” is granted to all RES technologies (up to a capacity of 10 MW in the case of hydro power). Additionally, the electricity produced from private households equipped with solar panels or wind turbines, both technologies having a capacity up to 30 kW, can also benefit from feed-in tariffs. There is also an additional premium for producers using at least 30% of equipment of Ukrainian origin.


In general, all renewable electricity generation technologies are eligible for support.
