MONTHS HAVE PASSED since the request of the Solar Energy Association of Ukraine to the Н К Р Е К П regarding the necessity of adopting a methodology that would determine the size and procedure of compensation to RES producers for dispatcher restrictions.
During the month, Regulator HAVE NOT made any comments in the public domain regarding the adoption of the Methodology, and did not appoint any hearings or consultations, which is a serious concern for all market participants.
The issue of legal regulation of Compensation is a priority for the fulfilment of the State guarantees provided by the Law of Ukraine “On Amendments to Certain Laws of Ukraine on Ensuring Competitive Conditions for Generation of Electricity from Renewable Energy Sources” of April 25, 2019 #2712-VIII. That’s right, since April 2019.
The SEAU has repeatedly warned that the delay in adopting the compensation mechanism is blocking investment in RES and, in general, the development of renewable energy in Ukraine.
Starting from November 2019, under the command of the transmission system operator – NPC Ukrenergo, producers of renewable energy that have been granted by the state with feed-in tariff are obliged to reduce or stop electricity production. We should remember that the right to receive compensation in the case of restrictions provided for by the Law.
According to the estimates of the Solar Energy Association of Ukraine, systematic dispatch restrictions have already caused millions of losses to RES producers.
We require the National Commission for Energy and Utility Regulation as soon as possible to adopt a methodology that would determine the procedure for compensation for RES producers for dispatching restrictions.
