Secretariat reviews draft changes to renewable energy legislation in Ukraine

5 June 2023

The Secretariat assessed the draft Law on Amendments to Certain Laws of Ukraine Regarding the Restoration and Green Transformation of the Energy System of Ukraine (No. 9011-d) submitted to Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.

Draft Law No. 9011-d introduces amendments to several laws in Ukraine governing guarantees of origin, self-consumption and support schemes for electricity from renewable sources, most importantly Law on Alternative Energy Sources and the Law on the Electricity Energy Market.

The Secretariat concludes that the draft Law partially transposes the Renewable Energy Directive (REDII) and some other elements of the so-called Clean Energy Package but does not ensure full transposition. As the proposed draft Law constitutes an important steps towards ensuring compliance with Energy Community acquis and resolves some important issues which have prevented the Ukrainian renewable energy sector from using its full potential after the settlement of the dispute with renewable energy producers in 2020, the Secretariat supports the draft Law subject to a number of recommendations.
