On September 9, 2022, EUEA sent a letter with proposals to the Ministry of Energy of Ukraine regarding the Draft Law of Ukraine “On amendments to certain Laws of Ukraine regarding the extension of the term of commissioning of renewable energy facilities under contracts for the purchase and sale of electricity at the «green» tariff, concluded by December 31, 2019.”

Letter: EUEA Letter Ministry on Pre-PPA Extension 2022.09.09

After analyzing the provisions of the proposed Draft Law, the EUEA expresses its support for this initiative of the Ministry and supports the need to extend by at least 2 years the relevant terms related to connection to the network and commissioning of power plants operating on RES, the construction of which was planned during 2022.

However, in the Draft Law, the issue of extending by 2 years the deadlines for the obligations of business entities regarding the construction and commissioning of electricity facilities, which are built in accordance with such technical conditions, remains unsettled. We ask you to supplement the Draft Law with appropriate amendments to Part 4 of Article 71 of the Law of Ukraine “On the Electricity Market”, which will regulate the mentioned issue. Amendments to the draft law are provided in the appendix to the letter (see Letter).
