Abstract
Ukraine is a country with huge wind energy potential. And yet it remains heavily dependent on imported fuel from Russia. Despite the existing potential the development of the wind energy sector in Ukraine faces many obstacles. Lack of transparency in the market and lack of the effect regulations both have negative impact for the development of wind energy sector. Political instability and continuous support for the convenient energy source prevents wind energy development. On the other hand, as a member of European Energy Community Ukraine has to increase its share of renewable energy up to 12% by 2020. Even though the attention for the wind energy is rising nowadays, the renewable energy market is still facing huge problems in general.... (More)
Ukraine is a country with huge wind energy potential. And yet it remains heavily dependent on imported fuel from Russia. Despite the existing potential the development of the wind energy sector in Ukraine faces many obstacles. Lack of transparency in the market and lack of the effect regulations both have negative impact for the development of wind energy sector. Political instability and continuous support for the convenient energy source prevents wind energy development. On the other hand, as a member of European Energy Community Ukraine has to increase its share of renewable energy up to 12% by 2020. Even though the attention for the wind energy is rising nowadays, the renewable energy market is still facing huge problems in general. Most of them are related to the discrepancies in legislation. In this thesis drivers and barriers for the wind energy development in Ukraine are identified using two different frameworks: first current situation is described using the framework suggested by Johansson, S. and Jonson, A. (2000); then findings are analyzed with the help of PEST analytical tool. (Less)
