Abstract: The data obtained from the monitoring of the results of research performed in the research institutions of the Division of Physics and Technical Problems of Energy of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (DPTPE of the NAS of Ukraine) for 2015—2017 are shown. The main statistical indicators of financing and publication activity are provided for the finished research works, with breaking by research fields. The tendencies in the research are analyzed by ten research fields: coal mining industry, oil and gas complex, electric energy, nuclear energy, non-traditional energy, energy saving, general problems of energy, science and technology support for energy, ecology, and Chornobyl. The dynamics of main indicators of research financing, performance and importance are revealed:

  • in spite of a stable upward trend in financing in the national currency, the actual financing was plummeting due to the rapidly falling rate of the national currency: in 2017 it made only 25 % of the figure recorded in 2012;
  • a long period of monotonous growth in the number of researchers changed for a stable downward trend: their number in 2017 fell by more than twice relative to 2012;
  • in spite of the insufficient financing the research effectiveness measured by numbers of publications was growing both in absolute and relative figures (per one finished topic and per researcher);
  • priority fields of research in the institutions incorporated in DPTPE of the NAS of Ukraine are electric energy, energy saving and renewable energy, which conforms to global tendencies; a significant expansion of research in coal technologies is recorded, caused by the government strategy on energy self-sufficiency of Ukraine.

Keywords: Division of Physics and Technical Problems of Energy of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, monitoring of finished research works, financing, thematic coverage.
