The Energy Community Secretariat welcomes the full membership of Ukrenergo, the Ukrainian transmission system operator, in the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E). Yesterday's decision by the ENTSO-E General Assembly marks a major milestone in Ukraine's energy sector integration with the European internal electricity market and follows the recent completion of synchronization of Ukraine's electricity networks with the Continental European Network.
Following its certification by the Ukrainian regulator and the Energy Community Secretariat, Ukrenergo has been an observer member of ENTSO-E since April 2022. Its promotion to full membership is a demonstration of their efforts in ensuring compliance with European energy market standards. The Secretariat is pleased to have been able to support Ukrenergo throughout this process, including by providing ENTSO-E with a compliance assessment report on Ukrenergo's unbundling and corporate governance.
The Secretariat will continue supporting Ukrenergo in the alignment of the rules with the Electricity Integration Package and their implementation.
