02 February, 2016, Draft Law 2529a from 08.26.2015 "On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of Ukraine about simplification procedures on land allocation for construction of heat and/or power generation facilities from renewable energy and/or biofuels" (authors: A.Dombrowski, О.Livik, М.Efimov) had been considered by the relevant committee of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine on Agrarian policy and land relations.

The Committee unanimously adopted the law as a basis for further consideration in Parliament.

The Draft Law proposes to:

  • allow the construction of power and heat generation facilities from renewable energy/biofuels without changing the utilization purpose of land;
  • allow the construction of power and heat generation facilities on renewable energy/biofuels without detailed plans of territories up to 01.01.2018.

UABio fully supports the Draft Law and considers it very important for the promotion of RES in general and bioenergy in particular.
