Ukraine generated 581.4 GWh of power by renewable sources in January-June, compared with 266.2 GWh generated in the same period a year ago, the ministry said.

The figures underscore the government's strategy of reducing reliance on the use of imported Russian natural gas for power generation to improve the country's energy security.

Ukraine's renewable power generation was growing faster than conventional power generation over the past 12 months, increasing to 0.6% of the total power generation in January-June, compared with 0.3% in January-June 2012, according to the ministry.

The government has forecast the renewable sources will be generating up to 11% of the country's power by 2020, in line with its commitments after joining of the European Energy Community in 2010.

The data comes as the National Committee for Power Generation, the country's energy sector regulator, has issued licenses to six new solar power generation plants with a total installed capacity of 16.58 MW.

The plants include Sambir solar power plant in the Lviv region bordering the European Union with capacity of 1.08 MW that will eventually increase to 5 MW, according to the committee.

Other plants include ElitBudDonbas LLC in Donetsk region with capacity of 1 MW; Solar Kvant LLC in Donetsk region with capacity of 2 MW; Rengy Tomashpol and Rengy Bershad, both in the Vinnytsia region with capacities of 4.5 MW and 7 MW, respectively; and Atlas Energy LLC in Kherson region with capacity of 1 MW, according to the committee.
