The coal sector has been an integral part of the Ukrainian electricity system for decades. But infrastructure and plants are approaching the end of their technical lifetime, and investments in the electricity sector are necessary, independent of the future composition of the power sector.
This study explores how this window of opportunity could be used to phase out coal in Ukraine and transition to a cleaner power mix for the future. We present a potential coal phase-out by 2030, reducing coal generation over the decade, while investing in new renewable power generation.
