The share of renewables generation in Ukraine's energy system
In 2019, Ukrainian SPPs produced 2,932,370 MWh. To compare, in 2018, 1,092,000 MWh were generated, which is almost three times lower. In 2019, a share of renewable generation in the general structure of electricity generation was 3.68%.

The share of renewables generation
As of June 1, 2020, 5.875 GW of SPP facilities have been constructed in Ukraine.

The solar energy facilities more than tripled in comparison with 2019 – the record-setting 3.5 GW of solar facilities were added in 2018, and another 0.9 GW in the six months of 2020. It is worth noting that any facilities planned for 2020 were completed in 2019 and are now waiting for the connection to external grids.
The development of solar energy
The leading position in building the solar potential remains with the Dnipropetrovsk region with its record-setting + 1.083 GW of facilities.

Special attention should be paid to the sector of rooftop industrial solar plants. In 2019, 102 MW of
capacities were added, which is 6.5 times more than in 2018.

The growth dynamics in the sector of rooftop SPPs
Kyiv, Vinnytsia and Lviv Oblasts possess leading positions in the sector of rooftop SPPs

The geographic distribution of rooftop SPP capacities
In regards to the private sector of solar plants – 14,248 SPPs were installed in 2019, which is three times more than in 2018 (4,440 SPPs) and 7.5 times more than in 2017 (1,901 SPPs). By results of 2019, 21,698 SPPs in total were installed in private households in Ukraine, adding 533 MW to the country's energy system.
