Nowadays, the assurance of energy security of our country is an important scientific and practical
task for state electricity supply companies and enterprises which are directly related to the fuel and energy
complex of Ukraine (electricity sector). Solving this issue is related to the formation of a reliable network
of alternative generation complexes and requires a preliminary analysis, research, improvement of the of
integration tools (connections) of wind, solar, bio, hydro power plants with industrial networks in the
infrastructure of Ukraine. In addition to the improvement of the technical part of integrated complexes
according to the structure "alternative generation source - conversion station - industrial electric
network", the ecological aspects of "green energy" are relevant. Namely, the impact on the external ecological environment of such complexes or their positive contribution to the reduction of negative
impact on the environment from traditional electricity generation.
The paper deals with the dynamics of the development of renewable energy sources (RES) in
Ukraine, including the volumes of "green energy" and "harmful energy" production. An analysis of the
relevant regulatory documents and the current state of the RES implementation in Ukraine during 2015-
2021 has been carried out. A special attention is paid to the study of the indicators of the limit volumes of
emissions of pollutants in the process of electricity production.
The issue of using energy-saving technologies in the context of ensuring the economic security of
Ukraine is considered.
