Total Energy consumption

Ukraine's total energy consumption per capita used to be rather high (4.7 toe/cap in 1992), but dropped sharply in the mid-nineties and since 2010 to only 1.9 toe/cap in 2017.

Electricity consumption per capacity is around 2 800 kWh, which is 35% below the CIS countries and less than half that for Russia. It dropped from its peak level of 4 400 kWh in 1990 to 2 500 kWh in 2000 and ...

Crude oil production

Ukraine produces a small and decreasing amount of crude oil, that only covers 5% of its needs (around 2.4 Mt in 2017, -4%).

Although, Ukraine has a refining capacity of 880 000 bbl/d, its operational capacity is only 153 000 bbl/d since four of its six refineries are mothballed: Kremenchug/Kremenchuk (374 000 bbl/d), Lisichansk/Lysychansk (160 000 bbl/d) since 2012, Odessa ...

Power consumption

Since 2012, electricity consumption has decreased by 17%, including a 13% fall in 2015; it recovered slightly in 2016 to 128 TWh and remained stable in 2017. This trend is mainly due to the low economic activity and the sharp electricity price hikes. Previously, electricity consumption increased by an average of 2%/year between 2002 and 2011.


Renewable in % electricity production

The State Agency for Energy Efficiency and Energy Conservation (SAEE) is also in charge of implementing the policy on renewable energy sources and alternative fuels.

Ukraine approved its National Renewable Energy Action Plan (NREAP) in 2014. The NREAP aims for renewables to account for 11% of final energy consumption by 2020 (from 3.8% in 2009), including an 11% share for electricity, ...

CO2 fuel combustion/CO2 emissions

GHG emissions more than halved between 1990 and 2008 and dropped by 5% between 2008 and 2016.

Through its Nationally-Determined Contribution (NDC) to fight climate change, Ukraine committed to assuring that its GHG emissions will not exceed 60% of the 1990 GHG emissions level in 2030.

CO2 emissions from energy combustion decreased by 60% between 1992 and 2000 and remained ...
