The complex, located around 100 kilometres north-west of Kiev, will consist of three adjacent photovoltaic plants (Dymerka 2, 3 and 4) on a site covering 92 hectares.
Fully owned by ACCIONA Energía, this photovoltaic complex will be equipped with 174,552 polycrystalline silicon modules mounted on fixed structures to produce 63 gigawatt-hours (GWh) per year, equivalent to the consumption of over 26,000 Ukrainian homes. This will avoid the emission of more than 60,000 tonnes of CO2 to the atmosphere from coal-fired power stations per year.
The energy generated will be sent to the national grid and sold to the public utility company of the Ukraine, Energorynok State Enterprise, with which a PPA contract will be signed for the electricity supplied (up to 31 December 2029). Later, ACCIONA will sign up for the pricing system to be established for the Ukrainian market.
The Government of the Ukraine is promoting renewable energy with the aim of reducing the country’s dependence of imported energy and diversifying its energy mix. Within the framework of the Association Agreement the Ukraine signed with the European Union in 2014, the country has set the target of 35% of its electricity production from renewables by 2035.
