This is a unique event, a unique opportunity, and therefore a unique responsibility. Ukraine not only demonstrates the dynamic integrative process into the European and world community but also is up to date with the newest waves and approaches. This step underscores the willingness of the Ukrainian civic society for meaningful changes in the energy field.
The participating organizations were called on to unite by Global 100% Renewable Energy Platform Ambassador Ruslana, a former winner of the Eurovision Song Contest, artist and renewable energy proponent.
“A transition towards 100% RE isn’t something new. I think it’s more accurate to say that it is vitally needed for humanity. At the same time for Ukraine, it is both a way for energy and political independence. I believe Ukraine can satisfy its total energy need from renewable sources. Moreover, it even will be possible to export such energy in future“, – Ruslana said during the press conference announcing the event.
In a historic event, the Ukrainian Association of Renewable Energy, the Ukrainian Wind Energy Association, the Bioenergy Association of Ukraine, the Ukrainian Hydrogen Council, the Ukrainian Association of the Solar Energy, Metropoliya Group and PrJSC Myronivsky Hliboproduct joined together to initiate this Initiative.
The new focal point represents a compelling opportunity to unite the various players in the renewable energy, energy efficiency and energy storage environments and reinvigorate related activities in Ukraine. The institutional structure of the Global 100% RE Ukraine as well as the programme for 2019 will be adopted and reveal soon.
