The public presentation of the scenario of Ukrainian energy sector transition towards 100% RES by 2050 will take place as part of the project "ASET - Strengthening civil society to advocate for sustainable energy transition (more on the website of the coordinator of the INFORSE -EUROPE").

Date: September 20, 2017 (Wednesday), 16:30 - 18:00

Venue: Kyiv, Volodymyrska str., 55, 3rd floor


-Present scenarios for possible development of Ukraine's energy sector by 2050

-Discuss Scenario of achieving 100% renewable energy in the energy sector of Ukraine by 2050 with representatives of NGOs and all stakeholders

-Unite NGOs interested in reaching 100% RES by 2050 to prepare a Joint Statement to the Government

Briefly about ASET

Within the ASET project, the experts of the NGO "Renewable Energy Agency" developed scenarios for the possible development of the energy sector of Ukraine till 2050: Baseline scenario, Climate Action scenario and High Commitment Scenario on 100% RES.

Baseline scenario represents “continuation of current trends” case without additional efforts and targets introduced in energy sector. Climate action scenario represents

Climate action scenario represents full implementation of climate obligations of Ukraine and even stricter potential obligation of Paris Agreement: -70% of emission reduction in 2050 from 2015 level, which corresponds to the trajectory of keeping the global temperature increase within 2ºC.

100% RES scenario is representing “highest possible efforts” towards energy transition to RES with the indicative target of 100% RES in power, heating/cooling, and transport sector and zero fossil component in 2050.



On September 6, at the Government meeting, the procedure for calculating average weighted tariffs for heat energy from gas was approved by the State Agency on Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving of Ukraine.
This decision is necessary for the proper implementation of the Law of Ukraine of 21.03.2017 №1959-VIII, which introduces a stimulating tariff for heat from alternative sources (http://zakon2.rada.gov.ua/laws/show/1959-19).
According to the Law, heat producers from alternative sources of energy will receive:
- the legislative level is clearly set at a rate of 90% of the tariff for gas heat,
- in the absence of it - at the level of 90% of the average weighted tariff for heat from gas.
Government approval of the specified order allows the State Agency for Energy Efficiency to calculate weighted average tariffs. In turn, local governments will be able to set incentive tariffs for heat from alternative sources at guaranteed legal level.

Thanks to the State Agency for Energy Efficiency and Energy Conservation of Ukraine and the Government of Ukraine for the adoption of this ultra-powerful subordinate act! Without it, the law would work only on the half.

MetropoliyaICS ENERGIETECHNIK GmbH became a Gold Sponsor of the International Conference "BIOMASS FOR ENERGY 2017", 19-20 September in Kyiv.

ICS ENERGIETECHNIK GmbH is placed in Kumberg/AUSTRIA and working already 30 years in the biomass energy market. The large experience in the engineering, construction and operation of biomass energy plants, allows to offer a wide range of different products and applications.

The company designs and delivers biomass heat and power generation systems in the power range from 0,5 to 25,0 MWth and 0,2 to 5,0 MWel. As fuel can be used wooden biomass like wood chips, bark and recycling wood as well as agricultural biomass like straw, corn cops or sunflower husks. The clients are mainly industrial heat consumers, district heating applications and industrial/agricultural drying plants. All plants are produced in high industrial quality for the different needs of the customers and their special technical requirements. Until today, there we successfully designed and installed more than 80 biomass energy projects all over Europe. In the year 2016, ICS has signed a contract for a biomass CHP plant with 2,2 MWel in Lviv/UKRAINE, which will go into operation until the end of the year 2017.

nl ua forum logo 2017 en bigDate: 19 September 2017 (Tuesday), 10:00 – 17:00 (forum starts after the opening of the international conference «BIOMASS FOR ENERGY 2017»)

Place: Ukraine, Kyiv, Volodymyrska Str., 55, Session hall at the 3rd floor

Goal of the forum: Enhancing the Dutch-Ukrainian cooperation in the field of sustainable use of biomass and biofuels in the heat supply and transport sectors of Ukraine.

Target group of the forum: Ukrainian sector companies, governmental institutes, agrarian companies and municipalities.

Ukraine faces challenges in the energy sector and biomass as an energy resource can make a significant contribution to the production of heat, electricity and biofuels.

Dutch companies have substantial experience in research, development and introduction of all bioenergy technologies (including combustion, co-firing, anaerobic digestion, and energy generation from waste, biofuel production) and introduction of biobased economy both from the research and production point of view.

Program of the forum this year includes two hot topics for Ukraine. In course of the first session, the questions of biomass utilization for production of heating energy will be discussed. Suggested topics for discussion: biomass resources, creation of the market of heating energy from biomass, standardization and certification of solid biomass, state and IFI programs and support mechanisms.

Second part of the forum will be dedicated to the questions of use of sugar beet waste and other agricultural biomass for production of liquid fuels (bioethanol and biodiesel) to be used in the heating and transportation sectors. Because of the necessity for Ukraine to comply with the targets sent by European Energy convention and practically unutilized quotas for export of bioethanol to EU the topic gain momentum and becomes hot.



We kindly invite the interested participants from Ukraine after REGISTRATION to send their business profile to the organizers NGO “REA“ (tryboi@rea.org.ua) before 1 September for registration and organizing meetings with the Dutch participants.

The Bioenergy Association of Ukraine appealed to the Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groisman on accounts with a special regime of use, which includes the funds for heat energy produced entirely or partly from natural gas and the existence of which reduces the measures of the Government and the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine in stimulating the replacement of natural gas with alternative sources of energy.

elektrosetiBioenergy 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).
