The event was part of a series of events organized by the University of St. Andrews in Scotland and the Center for Energy Ethics. Participants shared their thoughts on what awaits Ukraine’s energy system after integration with ENTSO-E and after the war.
Some thesis from the speech:
- Integration with ENTSO-E has been under preparation for years and much technical work has already been done. This is an important issue for Ukraine, as integration opens up opportunities for commercial exports, and these are new revenues to the state budget, which should also have a positive impact on the trade balance.
- We know that during the war there were already several situations when local municipalities received electricity from solar power plants, when the network was not working.
- Distributed electricity generation should be a very hot topic for discussion in the future. As well as the introduction of energy storage systems and hydrogen production.
“I hope that soon we will see a change in the energy system of Europe. We believe that Ukraine will cope, and we will show the excellent results of the energy transition!” – said Artem Semenyshyn.
