As a result of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, 90% of the country’s wind energy and nearly 40-50% of its solar energy are no longer operating.

Herman Halushchenko, Ukraine’s Energy Minister, reported this in an interview for the My – Ukraina (We Are Ukraine) channel.


Most of the green energy sources were located in the south of Ukraine, the region that is currently sustaining the greatest losses. 90% of wind energy and 45-50% of solar energy has been lost.

Halushchenko added that in 2019 and 2020, Ukraine saw rapid growth in green energy. Therefore its share in the country’s energy system was approximately 10-11%.

 "We had a strategy which predicted that by 2030, the share of ‘green’ energy in Ukraine would be at least 25%. I think that after our victory, taking into account the damage caused by russia [sic], we will possibly review this strategy and increase the percentage", the Minister stated.


  • On 17 October, Russians launched attacks on the energy infrastructure in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, Sumy Oblast and the city of Kyiv. Both household consumers and industrial enterprises lost power.
  • Nearly 30% of the energy infrastructure of Ukraine was hit by Russian missiles on Monday, 10 October, as Herman Halushchenko, Ukraine’s Energy Minister, reported on 11 October.
