Bioenergy keeps steady growing by 33% per year (according to the energy balance of Ukraine of 2017)

On 20 December 2018, the State Statistics Service of Ukraine issued the Energy Balance of Ukraine for 2017. According to the Balance, the share of renewable energy sources (RES) in the total primary energy supply in 2017 was 4.4% (3.8% in 2016). This growth rate is in line with the annual pace of RES development in Europe. Like the previous year, biofuels and waste accounted for the biggest share in the structure of renewable energy production in 2017 – 80%. The given data show another significant step in the development of the bioenergy sector in Ukraine. For example, the volume of the "production...

Prospects for the production and consumption of second generation biofuels in Ukraine

The article analyzes the current state of production of second generation biofuels in the world and evaluates the possibility of launching such production in Ukraine. The work is topical due to the fact that liquid biofuels can replace a certain share of motor fuels consumed in Ukraine, thus contributing to the strengthening of the country's energy independence. The purpose of the study is to assess feasibility of a project on the production of second generation bioethanol in Ukraine; the task is to carry out a preliminary feasibility study for such a project. The research methods include a review of the existing plants...

When the heat in the heat supply systems will be cheaper?

The article deals with: Use of low-temperature thermal energy sources in utilization installations; Current Ukrainian state standards for waste heat utilization; European experience in supporting waste heat utilization. Quote from the article:"The level of technological development allows implementing projects of waste heat utilization and transformation it into heat with other parameters, cold and electricity and heat accumulation." Read the full article here: When the heat in the heat supply systems will be cheaper? Yevhen Oliinyk – Board Member of the Board of Bioenergy Association of Ukraine. Electronic edition "Ukraine Communal", November 22, 2018 (in Ukrainian) The article is prepared on the basis of the USAID project "Municipal Energy...

How will end-users be affected by the simplification of third-party access to heat networks?

In past articles (You can read here, here and here), we talked about how simplifying the access of third parties (independent heat energy producers) to heat networks can improve the situation in centralized heat supply, and what should be done for this. Now is the time to tell more what changes should consumers be expected, if such a system will work. The article deals with the following issues: What affects the fare for the end-user connected to competitive DH systems? How the price of heat energy for Lithuanian heat supply companies in the cities of Vilnius, Kaunas, Klaipeda is changing? What changes will affect...

How to implement competitive relations in district heating in Ukraine?

We believe that it is a necessity to begin with the legislative basis, with a special focus on ensuring the unhindered access of third parties - independent heat energy producers to DH networks and creating clear "rules of the game" for all potential participants in this process. The mechanism of competitive relations in the district heating system of Ukraine has already been developed in the form of a draft amendment to the law "On heat supply" and some other laws of Ukraine. The article deals with the following issues: How necessary are legislative changes? Can we do without bidding? Why anticipate the possibility of lowering the...
