Vision2050 for Ukraine

The development and promotion of the Sustainable Energy Transition of Ukraine is in focus of a new INFORSE cooperation project called SELNEE in 2020-21. In 2020, the Ukranian NGO, REA made a report "Overview of Climate Sustainable Scenarios in Ukraine", which you can downlaod from SELNEE.
On this page, you can read about the earlier scenarios made, which date back more than a decade. The first INFORSE Vision2050 for Ukraine was developed in cooperation with REA, Ukraine with support from the Danish Outdoor Council in 2003. This 2003 scenario was updated by REA in 2016-2017 in the framework of the NGO cooperation ASET Project.

In 2017, the 100% Renewable Energy Scenario for Ukraine was presented by O.Tryboi & Epik from REA
(2017, Presentation pdf, 1 MB, Russian) in Ukraine and at the INFORSE-Europe Seminar in 2017 (2017 Presentation pdf 1 MB, English).
The full report in Russian (87 pages) and in English (101 pages) are available from REA's website on Ukraine Transition. Read more also on the ASET project and in Russian at REA's website.

Underneath, you can read the description of the INFORSE Vision developed in 2003-04, which paved the way to the developments of the scenarios in cooperation with INFORSE and REA in 2020-21, and 2016-17.

Overview of the Sustainable Energy Vision of Ukraine by 2050 (Published in 2003-04)
In the Vision2050 for Ukraine, INFORSE designed energy sector scenarios through 2050 to estimate possibilities for sustainable development. The vision is based on official national forecasts for the development of Ukrainian economy and data from the draft Ukrainian Energy strategy for the period till 2030.

In contrast to provisions of Ukraine's draft Energy Strategy, Vision2050 for Ukraine assumes development of Ukrainian energy sector on technological and technical basis equal to the EU ones. Due to the large role that high energy-consuming industry plays in Ukraine's economy, it was difficult to design a scenario that leads to a complete phase-out of fossil and nuclear energy by 2050. A detailed description of the Vision can be found in a article titled "Energy Outlook 2050" (2004, 11, pp. pdf 151 kB) by Geletukha G., Zhelyezna T., Zhovmir M., Konechenkov A., Matveev Yu. The article can be downloaded also from REA's website both in English and in Russian.

The Vision 2050 for Ukraine was presented at the international conference "Non-Conventional Energy in the 21st Century". Scientific and commercial organizations that are involved in the renewable energy sector received copies of the Vision document, which was well-received.

A slide show of Vision2050 for Ukraine's energy industry was made during a 2003 Pan-European seminar at the Center for Alternative Technologies in Wales. Further information about the seminar, and a copy of the powerpoint presentation, can be found on the website of NFORSE's seminar in Wales.

An official presentation of Vision2050 for Ukraine was made in Kiev on December 17th, 2003 at the international conference "Energy Efficiency 2003".

Under an initiative of EkoInform publishing house, Vision2050 for Ukraine was translated into Polish and published in a booklet for the Ukrainian delegation to the annual fair “Poleko 2003” in Poznan, 2003.

The power point presentation by Andrej Konecenkov from REA Ukraine can be downloaded from here (pdf 331 kB).
