Cabinet of Ministers approved the decision to sell green energy at e-auctions. This was stated by Prime Minister of Ukraine Oleksiy Honcharuk on his Twitter page.

The government creates conditions for the development of renewable energy; gives permission for the attraction of cheap credit resources; contributes to the development of high-tech equipment production in Ukraine.

"This will stimulate the production of alternative energy and will reduce the price of "clean" energy," Ukraine’s PM wrote.

The first "green" auctions are scheduled to be held in March 2020.
