Works in this area were initiated in 1979 at the Kiev Polytechnic Institute and further extended at the Institute of Electrodynamics, NAS of Ukraine, where in 1996 he defended dissertation for the degree of Doctor of Sciences on "Systems of accumulation and transformation of renewable energy." In 2003, with the participation of Kudrya Stepan Aleksandrovych were established the Institute of Renewable Energy, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, where he continued his scientific work as deputy director, and since 2016 - as director of the IRE NAS of Ukraine. Kudrya Stepan Aleksandrovych is known scientist in the field of renewable energy and has a basic and applied research results to create combined energy equipment and systems based on the research processes of transformation and accumulation of renewable energy. Under his scientific leadership developed methods and mapping the potential of renewable energy, as a basis for creating the atlas of renewable energy potential in Ukraine, the use of which is one of the determining factors of large-scale introduction of renewable energy in Ukraine. In IRE NAS of Ukraine and Inter – Branch Scientific and Technical Center for Wind Power Engineering performed research works in consequence of which was significantly increased energy efficiency of industrial wind power station within the state scientific support of "Integrated program for the construction of wind power stations in Ukraine."

This is not a complete list of scientific work results of scientist. He is the author of 287 scientific papers, 15 monographs including the textbook "Alternative and renewable energy", has 45 patents and copyright certificates. Equally important is its educational activities – Kudrya S.A. attaches great importance to preparation of scientific and engineering personnel in the field of renewable energy for its initiative in NTU "KPI" created the Department of renewable energy, which he headed from 2006. Continuing scientific researches Kudrya S.A. manages of education postgraduate students, he is the head of the specialized scientific council for doctoral and master's dissertations on specialty "conversion of renewable energies", the chairman of the Academic Council IRE NAS of Ukraine.
