Action plans, reports and statements

Ukraine

Day of Accession
1 February 2011
Status
Contracting Party

As a Contracting Party to the Energy Community Treaty, Ukraine has the obligation to implement the energy acquis in force. Parallel to the adoption of secondary legislation, the implementation of the acquis gives rise to diverse reporting obligations.

Particularly the implementation of the renewable energy and energy efficiency acquis is based on comprehensive, multi-annual action plans. As a first step, the Parties draft and adopt the action plans that set the steps for achieving the negotiated targets. They are subsequently obliged to report about the progress achieved in the form of regular progress reports.

Starting in 2019, Ukraine will also have a reporting obligation pursuant Annex VIII.B of the Large Combustion Plan Directive 2001/80/EC as amended by Decision 2013/05/MC-EnC.

This page displays the reports and action plans submitted by Ukraine to the Secretariat so far.

The statements are to describe in particular the diversity of supply, technological security, and geographic origin of imported fuels. The Parties have the obligation to update the statements and notify the Secretariat every two years.

  • National energy efficiency action plan

    National Energy Efficiency Action Plans

    The National Energy Efficiency Action Plans (NEEAPs) provide a framework for the development of a national strategy on how best to augment the level of energy efficiency. The NEEAPs, to be submitted to the Secretariat every two years, also provide a platform for the Parties to evaluate the energy savings resulting from the implementation of these strategies. Whilst the first NEEAPs covered the period 2010-2012, the second NEEAPs set the line of action for 2013-2015 pursuant to the Energy Services Directive 2006/32/EC.   

    The Energy Services Directive 2006/32/EC was repealed by the Energy Efficiency Directive 2012/27/EU. Incorporated into the acquis in October 2015, the Energy Efficiency Directive mandates the Parties to report and evaluate a set of measures that contribute to the 2018 national target for final energy savings. The Third NEEAPs should accordingly cover the period 2016-2018 and be submitted to the Secretariat by the end of June 2016 at the latest.

  • National Emission Reduction Plan

    National Emission Reduction Plan

    The Large Combustion Plants Directive took effect on 1 January 2018 in the Energy Community. For existing large combustion plants, two alternative implementation avenues exist: either compliance with the emission limit values for SO2, NOx and dust at individual plant level, or implementation of a National Emission Reduction Plan (NERP). Every plant must be covered by either of the two options. The National Emission Reduction Plan (NERP) for Ukraine was approved by the Secretariat in 2017. The Ukrainian NERP, as decided by the Ministerial Council, may be applied up to 31 December 2028 for SO2 and dust and up to 31 December 2033 for NOx. 

    In Ukraine, the opt-out of a total of nineteen coal-fired thermal power plants started on 1 January 2018, meaning that they cannot be operated for more than 20,000 hours up until 31 December 2023. In accordance with Decision 2015/07/MC-EnC of the Ministerial Council, certain plants in Ukraine are allowed to use the opt-out mechanism for not more than 40,000 operation hours between 1 January 2018 and 31 December 2033. This concerns eighteen coal-fired and 41 gas-fired combustion plants. The registration of the operating hours of the plants concerned by any of the opt-out mechanisms also commenced on 1 January 2018.
