Commissioning of the third hydro unit of the Dniester hydroelectric pumped storage effected on 21st of December, 2015 in Novodnistrovsk.
Dniester HPS is one of the largest and most scale infrastructure energy facility, which is implemented in Ukraine in the last 10 years. It proved that Ukrainians are able on their own force and expense to build a station of this scale.
The introduction of new capacities of wind power plants in Ukraine in 2015 slowed down almost 8 times compared to 2014 year (from 126 MW to 16 MW) because of the Crimea annexation and prolonged fighting in the Donbas.
In order to limit consumption of natural gas during 2015 about 77 thousand loans were issued by banks in the amount of more than $ 48 million for the purchase "non-gas" boilers, as well as energy-efficient equipment and materials.
During the year, the number of charging stations for electrocar in Kyiv has increased by 10 times - up to 32 stations.
