Summary/Abstract: The relevance of scientific research is explained by a critical energy dependence of Ukraine on the external sources of energy. The existence of earlier scientific and practical approaches on the topic of energy saving has not fully revealed the possibilities of finding ways to further diversify the sources of energy supplies. That is why the government annually faces the problem of choosing not only a foreign exporter of energy resources, but also a political and economic vector of the country’s direction. The need for Ukraine to join European strategic documents on the development and implementation of technologies in the field of renewable energy is rather relevant now.The purpose of writing this article is to analyze the compatibility of the proposed renewed version of the Energy strategy with all types of renewable energy, taking into account the development potential of renewable sources of energy in Ukraine. The author in this research is supported by forecasted results, which the EU–28 countries seek to achieve in the practice of energy renewal and energy supply. Thus these countries cement their own energy independence from external destructive factors (often of a political nature) with a gradual minimization and subsequent rejection of imported energy.This article examines the factors that contributed to the Ukraine joining the EU Directive 2009/28/EC along the road towards renewable energy technologies. The critical assessment of the advantages and disadvantages of the renewed Energy strategy of Ukraine against the background of the current crisis in the economy of the country is outlined. In accordance with the priorities of the renewed Energy strategy of Ukraine, the forecasts are attached of the scale of renewal of energy resources and the prospects of reaching them as fast as possible are considered.The scientific novelty of the research lies in the systematization of methodological approaches to the analysis of the present status of energy–providing and renewable components according to the industrial needs of the economy. Practical significance of the obtained results is the prospect to apply the materials of this article in the field of power saving and power supply by domestic economists
