The EBRD aims to help finance 10 to 20 bioenergy projects in Ukraine through 2021, Sergey Maslichenko, regional associate director for Energy Efficiency and Climate Change, tells Interfax.

After financing wind and solar projects, he said, “now we want to make a greater emphasis on bioenergy projects - biogas, biomass, and production of bioethanol.” He also reported on research, that shows Ukraine’s potential bioenergy resources - husks, straw, other agricultural wastes – have the energy equivalent of 30 million tons of oil. Ukraine consumes 8 million tons of oil a year.
