A Scenario based 2035 Forecast of Electricity Demand in Ukraine

Key messages:

  • A proper demand forecast is key to an efficiently designed future power plant park
  • Growth of total electricity demand in Ukraine is restrained by rising electricity prices and efficiency gains
  • Electricity demand is projected to increase substantially only in a scenario of strong economic growth
  • Under all scenarios of electricity demand growth, Ukraine will face overcapacities of thermal power plants by 2035
