Ukraine’s 2017 Energy Strategy 2035 forecasts a 17% renewable share of electricity generation, far short of a 1.5°C compatible share of 56%. The strategy also forecasts a fossil fuel share of 34% in 2030, which is more than double the upper limit of a 1.5°C compatible range of 3-15%, and only marginally lower than the 38% reported in 2018.
This strategy is currently under review, making now an ideal time to update it with ambitious 1.5°C compatible targets for renewable energy generation and a coal phase-out
