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 (EC) 1099/2008 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

    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. Data for the energy balance are collected using statistical surveys, administrative information, evidence-based data and expert evaluation.

    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 in households are still not sufficient to comply with the requirements of the Regulation.  Assistance from the EU4Energy Data initiative is expected to overcome these shortcomings. It is worth noting that SSSU published data on the share of energy from renewables, as a basis for monitoring the trajectory to the national renewables target. However, the full set of data, as required by Directive 2009/28/EC on renewable energy, as compiled by EUROSTAT in the SHARES tool has not been made available.

    SSSU compiles monthly energy statistics and ensures their timely dissemination. SSSU also compiles monthly Joint Organisations Data Initiative (JODI) questionnaires on oil and gas and submits them to the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD). Ukraine presents JODI questionnaires regularly through the UNSD in the world JODI database. 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.

    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.

    Although SSSU has established a robust quality assurance system and prepares quality reports, including on energy statistics, it has not provided the report on the quality of transmitted data as defined and requested by EUROSTAT.

  • Regulation (EU) 2016/1952

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

    In September 2018, UKRSTAT took a decisive step towards the implementation of Regulation (EU) 2016/1952 with the dissemination of the first dataset with electricity and gas prices charged to households and industrial consumers in the first semester 2018, broken down per consumption band and taxation level.

    The information has already been published on the UKRSTAT web page and transmitted to EUROSTAT in accordance with the procedure established by the Regulation.
