Energy Policy Talks “Moving towards a functioning competitive electricity market in Ukraine”


Energy Policy Talk in a series to address energy issues in Ukraine will take place on 19 February 2016 in Kiev. The talk will be hosted by the EU-funded programme INOGATE and will be opened by the Minister of Energy and Coal Industries, Volodymyr Demchyshyn, and senior figures from energy ministries and other related state agencies, as well as representatives of the EU Delegation and the European Commission. Deregulation in the electricity industry aims to create an efficient trading process for the forces of competition as well as a market with a robust system of security and reliability. A competitive wholesale market follows three-way segmentation: unbundling of generation, transmission and distribution, as well as providing a centralised framework for an economical electricity service. This assumes a large number of competitors with no barriers to entry or exit.
