Three plants totalling 57.6 MWp in Ukraine
CLEAN, NON-POLLUTING ENERGY
Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all
1 in 8 people still do not have access to electricity. In order to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all, it is necessary to increase the use of renewable energy from 25 % today to 38 % in 2025.
ACCIONA is positioning itself as a key player in addressing the growth in energy demand while curbing the progress of global warming and promoting the transition to a decarbonized energy model.
Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
The generation and use of energy is responsible for 74 % of total greenhouse gas emissions in the world. This activity is the largest contributor to global warming. Investment in renewable energy, energy efficiency and other low carbon technologies will continue to be essential to meet the new needs of humanity and to minimise their negative impact on the environment.
ACCIONA considers the fight against climate change and its related effects to be a strategic priority. The Company is working to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions in order to contribute to the progress of society and respond to the main challenges of sustainable development in the areas of infrastructure, water and energy, leading the transition to a low-carbon economy.
The complex, located around 100 kilometres north-west of Kiev, consist of three adjacent photovoltaic plants (Dymerka 2, 3 and 4) on a site covering 92 hectares.
Fully owned by ACCIONA, this photovoltaic complex is equipped with 174,552 polycrystalline silicon modules mounted on fixed structures to produce 63 gigawatt-hours (GWh) per year, equivalent to the consumption of over 26,000 Ukrainian homes. This will avoid the emission of more than 60,000 tonnes of CO2 to the atmosphere from coal-fired power stations per year.
The energy generated is sent to the national grid and sold to the public utility company of the Ukraine, Energorynok State Enterprise, with which a PPA contract will be signed for the electricity supplied (up to 31 December 2029). Later, ACCIONA will sign up for the pricing system to be established for the Ukrainian market.
The Government of the Ukraine is promoting renewable energy with the aim of reducing the country’s dependence of imported energy and diversifying its energy mix. Within the framework of the Association Agreement the Ukraine signed with the European Union in 2014, the country has set the target of 35% of its electricity production from renewables by 2035.
