Webinar 19 11 2021


The rapid development of electricity generation from renewable energy sources (RES) has been observed in recent years all over the world. Achieving the required level of flexibility in terms of integrating RES into the energy system is a challenge for any country.

Currently, the share of RES in the energy mix corresponds to the goal stated by the Energy Strategy of Ukraine until 2035. In parallel with the development of RES in Ukraine, new maneuvering and storage capacities should be developed. According to the scenarios of the Report on Conformity Assessment (Sufficiency) of Generating Capacities, Ukraine needs 2 GW of new high-maneuvering capacities with a quick start.

However, the appropriate regulatory framework and modern high-speed maneuvering capacities have not been developed. Balancing is mainly provided by the outdated coal generation, which does not meet today's requirements and causes high emissions of pollutants and CO2.

What is needed for the development of new maneuvering capabilities in Ukraine? What legislative changes and guarantees are needed to attract investment in this market segment? At the webinar we will consider possible scenarios for the development of the balancing services market in Ukraine, and our colleagues from Austria will share their experiences.
