Bioenergy Association of Ukraine appealed to the NKREKP with proposals for the draft of NKREKP Resolution "On approval of the Methodology of the payment formation for the connection to the transmission and distribution system".
Results of comparison of the situation with the connection of power plants on RES in EU countries and Ukraine show that almost all EU countries create preferences to producers of RES electricity, including connection to the grids.
A number of countries remit RES power producers from connection payment. In particular, connection to the grid for RES power producers in Austria, Denmark, and Germany is free of charge.
Some EU countries have a practice of payment for connection to the grid. For example, in Makedonia fee for the connection to the grid of a capacity up to 400 kW amounts from 34.5€/kW to 64.9 €/kW. The cost of connection power plants to the grid in Lithuania for capacities 100-500 kW is 57.01 euro/kW.
Bioenergy association of Ukraine considers that payment for the non-standard connection of power plants on RES to power grids should be equal for all distribution system operators in Ukraine and don not exceed a level of 50 EUR/kW (1500 UAH/kW).Read the UABio Letter to the NKREKP concerning payment for connection of RES power plants to electricity grids (in Ukrainian)
