Transition of Ukrainian energy sector towards 100% RES in 2050. Public Presentation
The public presentation of the scenario of Ukrainian energy sector transition towards 100% RES by 2050 will take place as part of the project “ASET – Strengthening civil society to advocate for sustainable energy transition (more on the website of the project coordinator: INFORSE – EUROPE).
Date: September 20, 2017 (Wednesday), 16:30 – 18:00

Briefly about ASET
Within the ASET project, the experts of the NGO “Renewable Energy Agency” developed scenarios for the possible development of the energy sector of Ukraine till 2050: Baseline scenario, Climate Action scenario and High Commitment Scenario on 100% RES.
Baseline scenario represents “continuation of current trends” case without additional efforts and targets introduced in energy sector. Climate action scenario represents
Climate action scenario represents full implementation of climate obligations of Ukraine and even stricter potential obligation of Paris Agreement: -70% of emission reduction in 2050 from 2015 level, which corresponds to the trajectory of keeping the global temperature increase within 2ºC.
100% RES scenario is representing “highest possible efforts” towards energy transition to RES with the indicative target of 100% RES in power, heating/cooling, and transport sector and zero fossil component in 2050.
