Highlighting investment opportunities, four Ukrainian cities – Chorkiv, Kamianets-Podilskyi, Lviv, and Zhytomyr – have set a goal of shifting to 100% renewable energy by 2050, Reuters reports. Zhytomyr plans to build three biofuel co-generation plants, four small hydro plants and 40 MW of solar, including a 10 MW plant next year. To cut energy consumption by 20% in a city of 250,000, Zhytomyr plans to retrofit schools and city buildings, buy electric trolley buses, and use LED street lights. Serhiy Sukhomlyn, mayor of this city 140 km west of Kyiv, tells Reuters the project is eased by Ukraine’s moves to decentralize energy production.
