In the framework of the cooperation between Government of Spain and Ukraine under the Kyoto Protocol, a ground-based solar station will be built in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. This is reported by the press service of the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources.
On March 26, the Ukrainian-Spanish delegation examined the territory where the new renewable energy facility will be built.
“This is a continuation of the implementation of projects of targeted environmental (green) investments that Ukraine received from Spain, having transferred its quotas for greenhouse gas emissions. The only condition for the use of these funds is to invest them in projects that ensure the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions that have a social effect and promote the development of renewable energy,” the message says.
The report notes that at the end of 2018 a solar power station was already opened in Pripyat on the territory of the Chernobyl NPP. It is located on the industrial site of the Chernobyl NPP, above the 4th nuclear power unit, which exploded on April 26, 1986. In particular, the annual capacity of this power plant is 1024 MWh / year.
