Electricity Market Reforms in Ukraine: Challenges and Opportunities

Webcast available

Webcast Recap

As part of a nationwide series of reforms, Ukraine has introduced a new law reforming its electricity market. This law provides an opportunity to synchronize the Ukrainian energy system with the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E) and integrate Ukraine within the European market. Why are these reforms important, and what are the benefits, drawbacks, and potential outcomes for Ukraine and its neighbors?

This panel addressed these questions and discussed the findings of the new report “Electricity Market Reforms in Ukraine: Challenges and Opportunities,” which provides assessments of both the hypothetical success and failure of electricity market reform in Ukraine.
