Priorities under the Ukrainian Presidency
On 1 January 2022, Ukraine took over the rotating Presidency of the Energy Community. During the one-year presidency, Ukraine will lead the Energy Community’s efforts to advance energy market integration and decarbonize the energy sector.
- CLIMATE / DECARBONISATION: High on the agenda will be the Energy Community’s contribution to the implementation of the European Green Deal, aiming to make Europe the first climate neutral continent by 2050. The adoption of the 2030 targets for renewables, energy efficiency and greenhouse gas reduction at the 2022 Ministerial Council will be a pivotal step for steering decarbonisation efforts.
- ENERGY MARKET INTEGRATION: Another major focus of the Ukrainian Presidency will be on improving energy market integration between Energy Community Contracting Parties and EU Member States.
- SECURITY OF SUPPLY: Strengthening security of energy supply at regional level will also be in the spotlight. The Presidency will put particular focus on the principle of solidarity which applies to Contracting Parties and the European Union alike.
Ukraine will define an action plan for its presidency priorities in the course of January 2022. It will include dedicated events and meetings besides the traditional Ministerial Council meetings at the end of the year.
