The construction of such large infrastructure projects as Pokrovska solar plant is a significant contribution to the implementation of the Energy Strategy of Ukraine. Only through the work of this solar plant, we plan to produce about 400 million kWh of “green” electricity that will allow reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 400,000 tonnes. Investments in the project will amount to about EUR200 million,” DTEK Renewables CEO Philipp Leckebusch said.
