Green Energy 2.0: what manufacturers should expect after the war is over

July 21, 2022

"Decarbonisation, digitalisation, decentralisation of energy systems constitute the Rule of three D's, currently being implemented in all developed countries of the world," Maksym Bielawski, Razumkov Centre’s energy expert, said on the air of the national news marathon. He reminded that the trend towards decarbonisation has not disappeared from the global agenda, and in order to adhere to it, Ukraine must continue the development of electricity generation from renewable sources.

After all, no man in the world wants to abandon the idea of ​​ carbon border regulation. As Mr. Bielawski elaborates, with the introduction of CBAM (Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism), when exporting industrial products (such as steel), it will be necessary to provide a certificate confirming the use of "green" energy for production, or pay an extra tax.

"If we do not take care of the development of alternative energy now, we will face problems filling the budget with foreign currency proceeds from export operations in course of post-war recovery," the expert emphasised.
