Ukraine may have a national network of charging stations for electric vehicles, if Energoatom and Ukrgasbank, which signed a memorandum for this, but implement it.
The idea of the project is quite simple, but large-scale. It envisages the use of Ukrgasbank’s financial capabilities and Energoatom’s production and technical potential as the largest producer of electricity in Ukraine to create an extensive network of charging stations for electric vehicles.
According to Energy Minister Herman Halushchenko, the project should also help Ukraine meet its international commitments on decarbonization: “We are accelerating the achievement of carbon neutrality in Ukraine’s economy, as well as reducing the environmental pollution.”
It should be noted that as of June 1, 2022, 36,602 electric cars were registered in Ukraine, in May their number increased by 1,016 cars, which was the best result since the beginning of the year and 63% more than a year ago.
