Viability of Alternate Energy Projects Boosted by Amended Legislation

Reforms approved by the Rada increase investment attractiveness of alternative energy projects. Draft law #2010-d better aligns green tariff rates with European practices and loosens requirements to use Ukrainian-produced equipment. The amendments support municipalities’ efforts to attract private sector investment needed for replication of P3DP’s alternative energy PPP pilot project in Malyn.

P3DP’s Draft Law on Green Tariffs Registered in Parliament

– P3DP learned that draft law #2010 On Amendments to Specific Laws on Competitiveness Conditions for Electricity Producing from Alternative Resources of Energy was registered in the Verkhovna Rada. The draft law is based on proposed legislation developed with P3DP participation in April 2014, when P3DP submitted legal recommendations on green tariff mechanisms in solid waste management. The proposed legislation improves methods of energy payment calculations for companies. The law, if passed, will facilitate launching of PPP projects in solid waste management and will greatly support efforts of P3DP in the sector.
