Speakers of this panel raised a question on imperfections and perspectives of the state stimulation of the alternative energy industry in connection to the law on the “green” tariff which came into force. The participants noted that the “green” tariff law is a right step, same as possibility to receive VAT privileges for renewable electric power. But comparing situation in Ukraine with other countries, some directions for improvement of the legislation can be found.
