Ukraine is interested in close cooperation with the USA on the implementation of technologies of small modular reactors.
"Our vision lies in the gradual replacement of thermal generation capacities, which suffered the most from Russian attacks, with modern carbon-free technologies. That is why Ukraine is interested in close cooperation with the USA on the implementation of technologies of small modular reactors," Minister of Energy of Ukraine German Galushchenko said during the online meeting with U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm, the Ministry’s press service informs.
The officials also paid special attention to cooperation in the restoration of the Ukrainian energy system after massive Russian attacks, ways to strengthen and protect it from military threats, as well as prospects for the development of renewable energy and the implementation of small modular reactor technologies.
Galushchenko emphasized that Ukraine strives to rebuild its energy system based on the principles of decentralization, resilience to military challenges, as well as the development of green energy and its nuclear component as a key generation.
As reported, terrorist attacks on Ukraine's energy system are coordinated by Russian energy workers as they know it well from within. Massive attacks on Ukrainian energy infrastructure have been ongoing since October 10.
