MOSCOW, October 1 – Novosti. Ukraine plans to completely abandon gas already in the next heating season, said Yuriy Vitrenko, head of the board of NJSC Naftogaz of Ukraine. His words are quoted by the publication “Ukrinform”.
“By the next heating season, Ukraine plans to completely abandon the use of natural gas for heating thanks to alternative energy sources.

According to him, construction of thermal power plants is underway in Zhytomyr, which will operate on biomass and RDF (refuse derived fuel – solid secondary fuel, actually household waste. – Ed.) and wood chips, their total capacity will be 50 megawatts. It is economically more profitable for Naftogaz to launch such projects than to import gas even for this heating season, says Vitrenko.
“We are raising funds for this from international partners. Such projects help to ensure that all energy is sustainable in the future. We also need to be aware of how important it is to switch from natural gas to biomass, alternative sources, heat pumps as soon as possible, because with the market price of gas, the payback period for such projects is two to three months,” he concluded.
Earlier, Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal assured that in the autumn-winter period the country would be provided with the necessary amount of energy resources. He noted that to date, more than 13.2 billion cubic meters of gas have been pumped into the gas storage facilities of Ukraine.
At the same time, Vitrenko, in turn, advised fellow citizens to stock up on blankets and warm clothes on the eve of winter, since, according to him, during the heating season, the temperature in the rooms will be 17-18 degrees Celsius, which is four degrees below the norm, and the heating the season will be shorter than usual.
