Today, the Energy Community Secretariat published its Opinion 4/21 of 25 November 2021 on the unbundling of the Ukrainian electricity TSO Ukrenergo. The Opinion supports the certification of Ukrenergo by the Ukrainian regulatory authority NEURC. However, in its Opinion the Secretariat raises concerns about the financing of the TSO from transmission tariffs, which are to cover also compensation for renewable energy projects under the existing legislation. The Secretariat also expects that a new and largely independent supervisory board of Ukrenego will take office immediately.
As required under Article 10 of Directive 2009/72/EC and Article 3 of Regulation (EC) 714/2009, NEURC shall take the utmost account of the Secretariat’s Opinion when adopting its final certification decision.
