Nerc alternative energy regulation

NERC Alternative Energy Regulation

The main body that exercises the state regulation in the power sector of Ukraine is NERC

Volume of authorities of NERC in the sphere of alternative energy is set by the Law of Ukraine on Electricity, Law of Ukraine on Combined Generation of Heat and Electricity (Co-generation) and Use of Waste Energy Potential and Decree of the President of April 21, 1998, No. 335/98 Issues of the National Electricity Regulatory Commission of Ukraine»

On 01.04.2009 Supreme Rada of Ukraine adopted Law of Ukraine No. 1220-VI on introducing Amendments in the Law of Ukraine on Electricity with respect to promotion of use of alternative sources of fuel according to which a model of differentiated (feed-in) tariffs for economic entities that generate electricity using alternative energy sources and for each power facility, they are valid until year 2030.

Concerning implementation of the said Law of Ukraine, NERC Decree of 16.07.2009 No. 828 introduced changes in the Procedure for setting, reviewing and termination of validity of “green” tariffs for economic entities, approved by Decree of 22.01.2009 No. 32, brining it into compliance with the adopted Law

NERC Alternative Energy Regulation

Main authorities of NERC in the field of alternative energy are:

  • Approval of the “green” tariff for electricity generated from alternative energy sources

  • Formation and maintenance of a registry of alternative energy facilities

  • Annual publication of information related to cost of connecting alternative energy facilities to power networks

  • Issuance of licenses for carrying out activities related to generation, transmission and supply of electricity, on generation of electricity and heat by means of co-generation units and approval of instructions, conditions and rules separately for each type of licensed activities in accordance with the Law of Ukraine on Electricity

  • Setting tariffs for electricity and heat generated at co-generation units

  • Setting rules for connecting co-generation units to power networks

Problematic issues of the Law of Ukraine “On electricity” related to promotion of alternative energy

  • For the facilities the construction of which started after January 1, 2012 and put into operation before January 1, 2013 incentive with “green” tariff is applied on condition that the share of raw material, main assets, works and services of Ukrainian origin in the cost of construction of the corresponding facility generating electricity from alternative sources is not less than 15%, for the facilities the construction of which started after January 1, 2012 and put into operation after January 1, 2013 - not less than 30 %, for the facilities construction of which started after January 1, 2012 and put into operation after January 1, 2014 –not less than 50%

  • Starting from January 1 2013 at solar facilities the share of materials and raw materials of Ukrainian origin in the cost of solar modules should be not less than 30%

    At present the order of defining the share of raw materials, other materials, main assets, works and services of Ukrainian origin in the cost of construction of generation facility and its components is developed but not agreed and not approved

Problematic issues of the Law of Ukraine “On electricity” related to promotion of alternative energy

  • In the lawsubstantially modernized facilities, that generate electricity using alternative sources are the facilities the cost of modernization of energy equipment of which ismore than 50% of the primary cost of such equipment

  • Primary cost of equipment - ?

  • How to define the primary cost of equipment of the facilities built at the time of the USSR (30s of 20th century)?

  • In case of using in the structure of fuel part of renewable (alternative) types of fuel

    Is the “green” tariff set for that part, for the whole volume or it is not set at all?

    Atthe moment the order is not covering economic agents that are involved in generation of electricity at facilities using alternative and traditional types of energy at the same time(NERC Statement of 22.01.2009 # 32 «On the order of setting, revising and cancelling the use of “green” tariff for economic agents»)
