State of compliance

Ukraine has achieved significant progress in terms of compliance with the statistics acquis. Annual data collection and the majority of monthly data required by Regulation 1099/2008/EC are collected and disseminated. Following the adoption of the Gas Market Law in 2016 and the Electricity Market Law in 2017, the reporting system for gas and electricity prices is being established, nevertheless, a lot of work is still ahead.

  • Regulation (EC) 1099/2008 on Energy Statistics

    Regulation (EC) 1099/2008 on Energy Statistics

    The SSSU publishes balances per product in December at the latest for the previous year and submits the full set of five annual questionnaires to EUROSTAT at the same time. The Ukrainian annual energy statistics are since 2017 available in the EUROSTAT database.

    Having produced and transmitted its annual statistics in the format prescribed by the acquis, Ukraine has implemented the basic requirements of Annex B of Regulation (EC) 1099/2008.

    However, the information on production and consumption of solid biofuel and disaggregated data on consumption of households are still not sufficient to comply with the requirements of the Regulation. It is worth noting that the SSSU published data on the share of energy from renewables, as a basis for monitoring the trajectory to the national renewables target.

    The SSSU compiles monthly energy statistics and ensures their timely dissemination. The SSSU is working on further improving its monthly statistics, especially with respect to short-term collections. Transmission of monthly data to EUROSTAT started in 2017 with coal and electricity monthly data. Oil and natural gas monthly statistics are still not transmitted to EUROSTAT.

    Ukraine has complied with the General Policy Guideline on a Roadmap on Implementation of Certain Deadlines of Council Directive 2009/119/EC in the Energy Community and implemented key requirements of Annex C of Regulation (EC) 1099/2008. To achieve full compliance related to monthly data, Ukraine must transmit to EUROSTAT the remaining monthly data collection, namely oil and natural gas.

    The SSSU has established a robust quality assurance system and prepares quality reports, including on energy statistics. The quality report on annual statistics is transmitted to EUROSTAT in accordance with the Regulation.

  • Regulation (EU) 2016/1952

    Regulation (EU) 2016/1952 on European statistics on natural gas and electricity prices

    The SSSU is in the process of establishing a reporting system for electricity and gas prices as required by repealed Directive 2008/92/EC. From 2017, the SSSU compiles the sets of average gas and electricity prices charged to industrial customers and to households, disaggregated per taxation level.

    Following the adoption of the new Gas and Electricity Market Laws, the SSSU is in a position to request and collect relevant data for regular electricity and gas price reporting per consumption band and broken down per price component in accordance with Regulation (EU) 2016/1952.

    Components of electricity and natural gas charged to end-users are not reported yet and hence Ukraine has still not achieved full compliance with the acquis on electricity and gas prices.
