Ukraine has desire to regulate the electricity market manually - Kopač

Ukraine still has a lot of desire to regulate the electricity market manually, which does not correspond to the liberalized market model.

This was announced on June 10, 2021, by Janez Kopač, Director of the Energy Community, during the 12th European Ukrainian Energy Day conference.

"In Ukraine, there is still a lot of desire to regulate the market manually, directly. And I see the biggest problem in the JI model and the incorrect regulation of the balancing market. Responsibility [remuneration due - Ed.] for balancing should reflect a real value. In Ukraine this is still not the case, unfortunately," said Kopač.

According to him, in order to make the energy transition to renewable energy sources, one need to make the first transition - to a liberalized market. The second transition will be to renewable energy sources.

"However, Ukraine has not yet made the first transition. And only after that, it becomes possible to switch to renewable energy," Kopač said.
