“WB financing will help reduce the risks associated with the synchronization of the Ukrainian energy system with the European energy network and help decarbonise it by supporting the integration of renewable energy, which should be more,” the Bank added.
In early June, the Cabinet of Ministers approved a decision to raise $ 211 million in state guarantees for Ukrhydroenergo from the IBRD and the FCT as part of a project to increase the sustainability of the energy system, which provides for the installation of hybrid power generation systems.
The funds will be used to install 197 MW of lithium-ion energy storage systems (CHP) at Kyiv PSP (46 MW), Kaniv HPP (3×22 MW), Kremenchug HPP (60 MW) and Middle Dnieper HPP (25 MW) in order to provide ancillary services for frequency and power regulation.
