Research background: The article examines the peculiarities of the economy decarbonisation in Ukraine’s regions using cluster analysis, which helped to determine the composition of clusters of regions with a similar level of the economy decarbonisation and common features. The study takes into account specific indicators. Close attention is paid to the study of the dynamics of carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere from stationary sources per unit of gross regional product in certain clusters and to the identification of factors and measures to reduce them. The development of energy innovations is identified as a key area for decarbonisation of regional economies. The role of decentralization reform is analysed and regarded as a factor in the growth of decarbonisation and development of energy projects in united territorial communities, which, in general, increases the level of effectiveness of the regional policy on innovative development of the energy sector.
Purpose of the article: to identify key factors in the growth of decarbonisation of the economy of the regions.
Methods: general scientific methods were used, the main of which are: cluster analysis – to identify clusters of regions with a similar level of decarbonisation of the economy, system analysis – to apply a comprehensive approach to the study of factors influencing the growth of decarbonisation of the economy and determining an effective balanced regional policy towards innovative development of the energy sector.
Findings & Value added: The directions of balancing the regional policy towards ensuring innovative development of the energy sector of the national economy in the conditions of Industry 4.0 are determined.
Key words: decarbonisation of the economy / energy innovation / clusters of regions / decentralization reform
