SAEE considers "green" auctions and net metering to replace the "green" tariff
The State Agency on Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving of Ukraine (SAEE) is considering two mechanisms to support renewable energy - "green" auctions and net metering to replace the current system of "green" tariff.
Yuriy Shafarenko, Deputy Head of the SAEE, spoke about this on May 31, 2021.
"In order to maintain the investment climate, I believe that we definitely need to hold an auction this year. Another area in which the SAEE works to stimulate the development of renewable energy is net metering. It is aimed at prosumers, at consumers who would produce electricity, at the point of its consumption," he said.
According to Shafarenko, it is thanks to net metering technology that the development of distributed generation will be possible, and producers of products that will have such a system and export goods to the EU will be able to avoid the CBAM mechanism in the future.
“Net metering involves the following: you give your excess electricity to the grid in order to take it to another part of the day or season (when you need it). You only pay for balancing, for using networks. It will be beneficial for consumers,” Shafarenko explained.
