Ukraine commissions renewable energy facilities with capacity of 539.1 MW in 2013
In 2013 Ukraine commissioned renewable energy facilities with a total capacity of 539.1 MW, which was 50.6% more than in 2012, Deputy Head of the State Agency on Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving of Ukraine Serhiy Dubovyk said. As of January 1, 2014, the installed capacity of renewable energy facilities that operate on feed-in tariffs was to 1.216 GW.
The capacity of solar power facilities operating on feed-in tariffs in 2013 grew from 371.6 MW to 746.9 MW, that of wind farms from 275.7 MW to 370.7 MW, small hydropower units from 73.5 MW to 75.3 MW, and those using biomass from 4.2 MW to 17.2 MW. In addition, biogas plants with a capacity of 6.5 MW started operating on feed-in tariffs in 2013.
Several solar power plants with an installed capacity of 100 MW were commissioned late in 2013, which was conducive to a slight increase in power output for the whole of 2013. Ukraine's Energy and Coal Industry Ministry recently reported that power generation by power plants using renewable sources, apart from large hydroelectric power plants, doubled in 2013 or grew by 608.4 million kilowatt-hours (kWh), to 1.247 billion kWh.
The share of electricity generated from renewable sources (wind, solar and biomass) of total generation grew from 0.32% in 2012 to 0.64% in 2013.

Energy market liberalization law takes effect from January 1
The law on the functioning of the electricity market of Ukraine, which foresees the liberalization of the country's wholesale electricity market, took effect on January 1, 2014.
Before the law became effective, Ukraine had an energy market with a single buyer, while the new law foresees the introduction of a model of direct contracts, a market of contracts "for the next day" and a balancing market, which will enable imbalances in electricity production to be corrected. It also assumes the creation of a market of additional services for the purchase of flexible capacities.
The most contentious issue in the law is the creation of a fund to regulate cost imbalances and its filling exclusively at the expense of funds from nuclear and hydroelectric power plants. According to representatives of the nuclear industry, the main function of the fund will be receiving funds from energy generating companies that are owned by the state (nuclear, hydro and pumped storage hydro power plants) for their further use to cover losses of thermal generation, which is mainly privately owned, as well as guaranteed suppliers. Payments for electricity sold at feed-in tariffs will be carried out through the fund, and the losses of guaranteed suppliers will be reimbursed from the sale of electricity to consumers at regulated rates and charges from the purchase of electricity generated by combined heat and power plants and other stations with a combined production of electricity at regulated prices, and its sale at market prices.

BRD creates 15,000 “green” working places in Ukrainian power economy
Within the frames of the Ukraine Energy Efficiency Program (UKEEP) in 2007-2011, Ukrainian enterprises were credited to the amount totaling USD 220 million. On the USELF program (Ukrainian Sustainable Energy Facility Program) about EUR 100 million has been allocated in 2012-2013. Investments allowed creating more than 15,000 working places directly in the sphere of “green energy..
Especially significant effect was obtained in the bioenergy sector, since the construction and operation and biothermal power plants and combined bio-heat and energy stations imply placing of additional orders and collection and storage of biofuels at forestry and agricultural enterprises. Thus, the company EIG Engineering, by attracting the EBRD loan amounting to EUR 15.9 million (within the USELF program) for the construction of the Ivankiv biothermal power plant on the wood chips of 18 MW capacity has already established about 1,000 legitimate jobs. We are talking about Ukrainian citizens, engaged in construction of the facility, its maintenance, wood fuel storage, transportation and other areas.

Record volume of alternative energy received in Crimea
For the first nine months of 2013, with the help of renewable energy sources, Crimea obtained 285.7 million kWh of electricity, which corresponds to 30% of the total energy on the peninsula. According to experts, from January to September this year, solar electric plants produced 251.2 million kWh, wind power plants - 34.6 million kWh, covering together 6.6% of total energy consumption of Crimea. In early November, the total installed capacity of "green" energy objects in Crimea was fixed at the level of 295.5 MW, including solar power - 227.3 MW and wind farms - 68.2 MW.
Experts believe that the region has a huge potential for alternative energy, primarily wind and solar. But construction of alternative power plants requires huge investments. For example, in order to build additional capacity of 1 MW, it is necessary to build high voltage networks over the entire region, to build new sub-stations, and this means billions in investment programs. By the way, a loan of more than a billion dollars received by Ukraine from China has been issued just for development of alternative energy.
According to experts, by 2020, Ukraine will increase the share of alternative energy of total electricity generation in the country to 15-20%.There are good reasons for such an optimistic forecast. Today, the pace of alternative energy development in Ukraine beats all records. In 2013, the total installed capacity of solar power plants Ukrainian (SPP) increased by 51.4 %. And for three years, the total capacity of solar power plants in Ukraine has risen more than 100 times. As for the wind power plants (WPP), Ukraine can be an example for other countries. According to experts, Ukraine is the second largest in the world by the fastest growing of the wind energy industry.
Very rapid growth in the alternative energy sector is due to a noticeable influx of private investments in this sector. Their sum is currently more than USD 20 billion. But by 2015, the amount of investments in the "green" energy sector of Ukraine, according to experts, could reach USD 5 billion.

Domestic facilities of renewable energy generate almost 1,000 MW
The capacity of renewable energy facilities in Ukraine as of October 1, 2013 is 960.7 MW. Its annual growth rate reached 36%. Chairman of the State Agency on Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving of Ukraine Mykola Pashkevych said this while presenting a draft National Action Plan on Renewable Energy until 2020. "As of October 1, 2013 the installed capacity of renewable energy facilities was 960.7 MW. This year, 315 MW has been commissioned. This is 36% more than last year. Over the past 9 months, Ukraine has produced more than 1 billion kW/hours of electricity, which made it possible to replace the energy resources in the amount of 400,000 tonnes of fuel," Pashkevych said.
According to him, in 2020 the share of energy sources produced from renewable energy sources shall be not less than 11% of the total final consumption of energy resources. "It is possible to meet the goal. This is proved by the rate of development of this sector, there is a capacity and government support," he added.

Ukraine will be provided with domestic biofuel
Capacities of the state enterprise Ukrspyrt as regards bioethanol production in 2014 will increase to 150,000 tonnes, thanks to this the country will fully provide for the needs of its domestic biofuel market. "Total capacity of the Ukrspyrt corporation plants engaged in biethanol production is about 100,000 tonnes. Also distilleries are being modernized, whose capacity will make up additional 50,000 tonnes per year, and their reconstruction to be completed as early as January 1, 2014," a statement reads.
Today, the following plants are ready for bioethanol production, such as Naumivka (9,500 tonnes per year) and Ivashkivka (7,200 tonnes per year) distilleries, Khorostkiv spirits distillery (47,400 tonnes), Haisyn Distillery (10,600 tonnes per year), Luzhany experimental plant (8,200 million tonnes per year), Barsky spirit combine (11,000 tonnes per year), Chervonensky plant (7,100 tonnes per year).
To remind, according to the Law No. 4970-VI “On amendments to some laws of Ukraine on production of motor fuels containing bio-components" total gasoline sold in Ukraine, must contain at least 5% of bioethanol in 2014-2015. And from 2016, the obligatory share of bioethanol in gasoline is increased to 7%.

Transcarpathia named most energy efficient region in Ukraine
Zakarpattia region is declared the most effective region in Ukraine for energy consumption. "The region has won first place in the energy efficiency ranking of Ukraine (Ukrainian Energy Index 2013), the results of which were presented on October 16 in Kyiv at the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Forum. The overall efficiency of energy consumption in Zakarpattia region was 64.3% of the EU rate," the report said.
The energy efficiency of Ukraine's regions was evaluated for industry, agriculture, services and housing sectors as a percentage of the average energy efficiency of these sectors of economy in the European Union, which the ranking makers took as a standard (100%). The difference between the figures of the region and the standard defines the potential of each region for energy efficiency. The greater the difference is, the lower the efficiency of the region, and, consequently, the greater the amount of energy you can save, approaching EU standards.
Chernihiv region is ranked second in the Ukrainian Energy Index 2013 with 63.8%, followed by Vinnytsia region - 62.9% of the EU rate. The ranking makers noted that the high places of these regions were provided by the lack of energy-intensive industries and the high energy efficiency of the housing sector in these regions.
The energy efficiency ranking was initiated and sponsored by SCM, whereas the BEST analytical center was responsible for the development of the methodology and the conduct of the survey.

China to help build three biofuel plants in Ukraine
Ukraine and China in the next few days will sign the necessary documents to build in our country three factories for the production of bioethanol (ethanol, produced in processing of vegetable raw materials to be used as biofuel). Minister of Agriculture and Food Mykola Prysiazhniuk Prysiazhniuk explained that the Ukrainian side will purchase equipment at China for the plants. They will be build on the basis of old distilleries in Odesa, Kyiv regions and most likely in Ternopil. The construction of the three plants will enable to process an additional 1 million tonnes of corn per year.
China's finance and technology assistance to produce biofuels in Ukraine began to be discussed at the beginning of last year. The idea was that distilleries, which today are unprofitable or use obsolete equipment, be converted into ethanol production. After that Ukraine was visited by the Chinese side, which made the assessment of the enterprises and prepared the technical documentation for the modernization.

Ukraine to build two bioenergy thermal power plants
By the end of 2016, EIG Engineering plans to build two thermal power plants (TPP) based on solid biomass with a total capacity of 40 MW. The first 20-MW station will be built in the town of Dubrovytsia, Rivne region, the second TPP with similar capacity - in Horodnia, Chernihiv region.
A reminder that wood chips will be used as fuel. Fuel for the thermal power plants will be purchased at state-owned forest farms located within a radius of 150 km from the new facilities. It is assumed that part of the "green" electricity generated by the new thermal power plants will be sold to the united energy system of Ukraine. In addition, partially the electricity will also be distributed to the districts of operation of the new power plants. This, firstly, will improve the quality of supplying electricity to the local population, and, secondly, ensure uninterrupted power supply to the regions.
The approximate amount of investment in the two projects will be around EUR 66 million. Putting Dubrovytsia and Horodnia bioenergy TTPs into operation will create about 200 new jobs. In addition, the purchase of the local non-merchantable timber at UAH 30-40 million a year will significantly increase tax revenues to local budgets and increase trade in the regions.
EIG Engineering was established in 2006. It deals with the implementation of investment projects "turnkey" in the field of alternative energy.

MP proposes that government increase share of green energy in Energy Strategy 2030
Ukraine's government has been proposed to increase the share of renewable energy in the energy balance of the country as part of improving the Energy Strategy 2030.This initiative was put forward by First Deputy Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Fuel and Energy Sector, Nuclear Policy and Nuclear Safety Oleh Zarubinsky MP. "If we are talking about the European path, we should adopt European trends, and it is 40-50 percent of renewable energy in 10-15 years, when it comes, for example, about Germany and the Nordic countries," Zarubinsky noted. According to him, currently the share of renewable energy in the energy balance does not reach 1 percent. "Therefore, it is necessary to invest in the solar, wind, hydro-electric power stations - in the energy, associated with the renewable sources, and not with what the 'mother nature' has given," the MP stressed.
As reported, in late July the government approved the updated Energy Strategy of Ukraine 2030. The text of the document has not yet been made public. In the baseline scenario it has been assumed that by 2030, solar, wind and small hydro power plants will generate 13 billion kW/h of electricity compared to 0.8 billion kW/h in 2012. After the adoption of the document, it was proposed to increase this figure three times to about 40 billion kW/h. According to experts, the development of renewable energy at a faster rate carries risks of technological stability of the integrated energy system. European countries, including Germany and Spain, have already reduced subsidies for renewable energy. The Czech Republic, due to the threat of a trouble-free operation of the network, reduced the tariff for such generation two-fold. At the same time, in the country after the introduction of 1,600 MW of "green generation" in 2011, electricity rose in price by 13 percent for households and 25-28 percent - for the industry.

Scientists working over biofuel development program for 2013-2014
The national agroindustrial complex has enough raw materials for production of solid biofuel. Therefore, a Program for development of energy production from biological raw materials and the action plan for 2013-2014 will be developed in Ukraine in the nearest future. The use of biological types of fuel will help reducing the country's dependence on imports of energy resources, whose price rises. In addition, biofuel production will promote creation of new working places, improvement of the ecological situation, etc.
To remind, according to the Law of Ukraine “On amending some Laws of Ukraine on production and use of motor fuels with biological components,” a gradual increase of the mandatory content of bioethanol is set in production of blended gasoline. In particular, in 2013 - 225,000 tonnes (mandatory bioethanol content no less than 5%); in 2014-2015 - 225,000 tonnes (mandatory bioethanol content no less than 5%); from 2016 - 315,000 tonnes (mandatory bioethanol content no less than 7%).

Energy potential of agriculture waste equated with 17 billion cu m of gas each year
Ukraine has biomass potential, which is estimated at 27 million tonnes of the oil equivalent a year. And the biomass energy potential of agricultural waste is almost 20 million tonnes of the oil equivalent, which is equated with 17 billion cu m of natural gas every year. Hryhoriy Kaletnik, Chairman of the VR Committee on agricultural policy and land relations, has stressed this at the international bioenergy forum “Use of agricultural production waste potential as a source for renewable energy in Ukraine”. It is possible to satisfy 13% of Ukraine's need in primary energy through attraction of this energy production potential. And using possibilities of the land resource - production of biomass and processing it for fuel - may totally satisfy the necessary need in Ukraine's energy sources,” Kaletnik stressed. He also said that by computations of scientists, biomass from 10 million ha in Ukraine will enable to fully remove the problem of oil products import - this is 80% to their annual need. “Ukraine consumes approximately 5 million tonnes of gasoline and 6 million tonnes of diesel fuel. In other words, 80% of these can be produced as biofuel,” Hryhoriy Kaletnik noted.

Share of biofuel six fold less in energy balance of Ukraine against European Union
According to the energy balance data of Ukraine, out of total supply of primary energy, which is over 130 million of the oil equivalent for our country, biofuel is only 1.48 million tonnes, which is 1.14% in the energy supply structure. For comparison, a similar index in the EU countries makes up 6.72%. “Such a low share of biofuel energy in the national structure of the energy balance raises concern. Because the existing biotech waste potential is rather high in Ukraine. According to our estimates, judging from the volume of grain and oil-bearing crops, whose straw and the production waste can be used for energy production, it is possible to ensure up to 15% of primary energy consumption,” Executive Director of the Ukrainian Agribusiness Club Oleksandr Verzhykhovksy said.
The issue, according to him, becomes more important in the context of strengthening Ukraine's energy independence, which, as it is known, considerably relies in its energy balance on imported energy carriers, primarily, natural gas, whose share in energy consumption exceeds 35%.

Energy willow to be planted on over 5,000 hectares of unproductive land in Rivne region
Growing of willow for energy started in the northern provinces of Rivne region, where there is a lot of unproductive land. Permits were issued for the development of more than 5,000 hectares of land. RINFORM learned from the State Agency of Land Resources. "Energy willow over time can become an alternative to gas, coal and peat. A thermal power station will open in Rivne for its processing. This is one of the possible ways to use plots that are not processed, so our priority today is to reduce the amount of unproductive land," Svitlana Bohatyrchuk-Kryvko, head of the land agency's department in Rivne region said.
In Ukraine, energy willow was planted in Ivano-Frankivsk, Volyn, Lviv, Ternopil and Rivne regions. In the EU, the use of energy crops is especially popular. In Denmark, willow is grown only on 500 hectares of agricultural land, while in Sweden willow plantations account for up to 20,000 hectares.

Vin-Pellet to process straw into biofuel
The plant Vin-Pellet in Vinnytsia region will process straw into biofuel, Oleksiy Timofeev, general director of Smart Energy (management company within the group Smart Holding), told reporters during his visit to the plant. "We will work in Vinnytsia region with a new for Ukraine type of raw material - agricultural waste. Tracking the situation in the energy sector, we plan to increase the total capacity of the project from 10 to 20 plants in order to collect 3,000,000 tonnes of pellets. This production, when reaches its design capacity, will use 15-20% of the straw that is left on the fields," Timofeev said. According to the investor, today the plant is under trials and by the end of 2013 it plans to reach a capacity of 75 thousand tonnes per year, or 12 tonnes per hour. The specifics of this project involve the collection of all agricultural biomass: straw of wheat, rye, soybeans, buckwheat, and even corn. Raw materials for the plant are now collected in a radius of 50 kilometers in seven districts of the region. Farmers receive about 40 UAH per ton of raw material.
Markets for biofuel are mainly concentrated in Europe, but in the future the production will be focused on the domestic consumer. As the manufacturer says, this is a good alternative to gas: a ton of pellets replaces two thousand cubic meters of gas, which may save several billion cubic meters of gas per year.
Around 25 million euros has already been invested in the plant. Total costs on the plant's reaching its full capacity will be about 30 million euros. The company may build one or two factories a year.
Smart Energy is the managing company within the group Smart Holding, which is responsible for the development of projects in the field of hydrocarbons production and alternative power industry. Smart Holding is one of the largest investment groups in Ukraine focusing on the metals and mining, oil and gas industry, shipbuilding, real estate and agriculture. The company is controlled by businessman Vadim Novinsky.

Legislative changes will boost production of green energy equipment
Amendments to the law on electric power industry will encourage investors not to import equipment and build factories for the production of alternative energy plants in Ukraine. This opinion was expressed by an expert with the Energy Strategy Institute, Yuriy Korolchuk. "This law means the development of local production. Even Chinese, European or American companies that would like to operate in the Ukrainian market will have to take steps not just to bring the equipment, but to build production here," Korolchuk commented on the main goal of the amendments made to the law. According to him, the companies that are interested not to build factories in Ukraine, but simply to import equipment are against local development.
April 1, 2013, gave effect to the bill on amendments to the law on electric power industry to stimulate the production of electricity from alternative energy sources. The amendments provide that for power generation facilities that produce electricity from alternative sources, the green tariff will be applied on condition of making 30-50% of equipment for wind, solar, biogas and other power plants in Ukraine.

Germany to increase production of biofuels from waste in Ukraine
Germany is planning to increase the production of thermal energy and biogas from agricultural waste in Ukraine, using German technology and equipment. To date, the country has about 30 such projects, the agriculture ministry reported. According to Viktor Tymoschuk, expert of the ministry's engineering and farm machinery department, Ukraine produces 700,000 tons of solid biofuel a year now. For comparison, each German plant is capable of making 800,000 tons per year.
In 2013 the two countries are planning to put this cooperation to a new level with plans to promote the production of biofuels in Ukraine, including the creation of pilot bio-energy complexes. Having a large agricultural sector, which produces a significant amount of agricultural waste and manure, Ukraine has a significant potential for bioenergy production. In October last year, Ukraine launched its first pilot project for the production of solid biofuels in Vinnytsia region. Currently, this country has six biogas plants. Two of them are located in western and southern Ukraine. At the moment, the amount of biogas production in Ukraine is estimated at 30-35 million cubic meters.

Development of Alternative Energy in Ukraine
Alternative Energy in Ukraine in past year and a half has developed more intensively than the traditional one. As of early July, the total number of companies operating power plants on renewable energy sources and selling electricity based on the "Feed-in-Tariff" has risen to 66, and the number of such power plants - up to 111.
Mykola Pashkevych, the chairman of the National Agency of Ukraine on Ensuring of Efficient Use of Energy Resources, said that in 2011 the installed capacity of power plants with on renewable sources due to the implementation of many projects has doubled, and the production of electricity increased from 240 million kW -hours in 2010 to 330 million kWh in 2011. At the same time the production of clean energy by wind farms, solar plants and small hydroelectric power plants will reach one billion kWh this year, predicts the Agency.
The Crimea - is the leader in the country in usage of renewable energy sources due to the intensive development of solar energy in the peninsula. In the first half of the year nearly a third of electricity produced here has fallen to solar and wind energy. Built mostly at the end of last year and early this year - in January-June 2012 - photovoltaic plants increased electricity output by 32 times compared with the same period in 2011 - up to 144.1 million kWh.
This significant growth has allowed increasing the share of renewable energy sources in the total electricity production to a record 29% for Ukraine despite the fact that electricity generation by wind power plants in Crimea in the first half of the year fell by 1.7% - to 23.1 million kWh. In general, the production of electricity on the peninsula in the reporting period increased by 36.3% - to 577.7 million kWh, which reduced electricity imports from the mainland, as well as decreased significant losses that accompany such imports because of the need to transmit electricity for long distance.

Adding 5% of bioethanol to gasoline will be recommended since 2013
The Energy and Coal Industry Ministry of Ukraine prepared the draft law on step-wise adding of bioethanol to gasoline, which is produced and realized on the territory of Ukraine. In the nearest future, this document will be submitted to the Verkhovna Rada.
"The aim of this draft law adoption is creation of favorable conditions for development and consumption of alternative types of fuel on the territory of Ukraine, development of the motor fuel market and strengthening of energy independence of Ukraine. The draft law provides that adding 5% of bioethanol to gasoline will be recommended since 2013, and mandatory adding of bioethanol is envisaged in 2014-2015. Also, it is proposed that since 2016, mandatory contents of bioethanol in motor gasoline will be no less than 7 %. Filling stations and fuel bases should be re-equipped over one year respectively," Director of the department for oil, gas, peat, oil production industry and alternative types of fuel at the Energy and Coal Industry Ministry Ihor Kyriushyn has explained.
According to him, in compliance with data of the Agrarian Policy and Food Ministry, 42 plants for production of biodiesel fuel were constructed in Ukraine, which may produce up to 500,000 tons of this fuel annually. Today, Ukraine has all possibilities to provide itself with bioethanol. "I should note that bioethanol contents in motor gasoline up to 10% does not require re-equipment of the automobile fuel system and does not worsen the fuel quality by no means," the specialist noted. "In the nearest 10-15 years, we have a task to maximum increase a part of the use of bioethanol in the fuel quality in Ukraine. This is the main task, which was set by the ministry. In introduction of bioethanol on the motor fuel market of Ukraine, world's leading experience will be taken into consideration, in particular, of the Federal Republic of Brazil," the ministry's representative informed. He also noted that Ukraine has even better possibilities for the use of bioethanol against Brazil.

Construction of combined-cycle power plant in Scholkyne
Ukraine and China decided to accelerate work on the project to build a combined-cycle power plant in Scholkyne (Crimea). The construction of the plant could begin before the end of this year, Deputy Minister of Energy and Coal Industry Volodymyr Makukha said. The official admitted that at present there is certain dragging behind the schedule. "There were some mistakes, and we had to replace the designer," Makukha said. Now the project must go through internal procedures in Ukraine to be approved and obtain state guarantees.
According to Makukha, the cost of the project until the end of the year has not been fully approved. "The amount is just being estimated, it will be roughly around USD 2 billion. The sum is big, because, apart from the station with a capacity of 800 MW, we provide for very large investment in the development of Crimea and serious investments in the construction of a pipeline," the deputy minister said.
The agreement on the construction of a combined-cycle power plant was signed during the visit of President Viktor Yanukovych to China in September 2010. The plant must be built on the site where in 1981 the construction of a nuclear power plant started, but in 1989 was frozen due to the fact that the site was recognized as geologically unstable.

Sugar industry reorienting to production of biofuels
Ukraine needs to switch its sugar industry to the production of biofuels because of difficulties with the exports of this product. Ukraine can not find foreign markets for its sugar despite the fact that there are no grudges against its quality, Minister of Agricultural Policy and Food of Ukraine Mykola Prysiazhniuk said at the press conference. The minister also informed that, according to the crop pattern, Ukraine has to sow sugar beets on about one million hectares, which would allow producing 60 million tonnes of sugar beets, while domestic demand and production of sugar in Ukraine takes a maximum of 17-18 million tonnes of sweet roots. That is, in his opinion, 40 million tonnes of sugar beets can be recycled, which will result in 4 million tonnes of biofuels. This level can be achieved within 4-5 years, the minister said.
He also said that the agreement on a free trade zone with the European Union provides for a pretty good amount of Ukrainian sugar imports, and expressed the hope that in the future sugar exports to the EU will not be stopped by the regulatory methods.

Bioenergie-Partnerschaft zwischen EU und Ukraine
Nachwachsende Rohstoffe spielen in einer langfristig zukunftsfähigen Wirtschaft eine zentrale Rolle. In Europa wurden Versuche und Anwendungen von Biotreibstoffen auf nationaler Ebene initiert. Dies ist aber aufgrund der zu erwartenden massiven Produktionssteigerungen kaum noch zu bewältigen, deshalb wird die Produktion von Biomasse heute mehr und mehr in Schwellen- und Entwicklungsländer verlagert.

NAER: Ukraine fails to use UAH 3bn of green investments
Ukraine did not use UAH 3 billion, obtained under the Kyoto Protocol in 2009, according to Serhiy Yermilov, the Chairman of the National Agency of Ukraine for Efficient Use of Energy Resources (NAER). "These are the so-called green investments. We can not use these funds anyhow. We need these funds to invest in energy saving programs in such a way that emissions are decreased by a corresponding amount," he said. Yermilov said that energy saving projects under the funds of the Kyoto Protocol should be ratified by Japan, since it bought the country quota. He added that last year the Japanese liked none of the projects. NAER hopes that this year there will be funds from the budget, and the agency in cooperation with line ministries would prepare high quality energy saving projects.

Ukrainische Rapsexporte könnten über EU-Richtlinie stolpern
Die ukrainische Organisation Agrarbusiness-Club hat vor einem möglichen Einbruch der nationalen Exporte von Ölraps in die Europäische Union gewarnt. Der Grund dafür liege in neuen, aus der EU-Richtlinie zur Förderung der Nutzung von erneuerbarer Energie hervorgehenden Kriterien für die eingesetzten Rohstoffe. So ist ab 1.07.2010 nachzuweisen, dass die Biomasse nachhaltig hergestellt worden ist. Für Tausende ukrainische Rapsproduzenten könnte die Forderung der Exporteure nach einem entsprechenden Zertifikat eine Überraschung bedeuten. Der Agrarbusiness-Klub hat daher das Landwirtschaftsministerium aufgefordert, eine Arbeitsgruppe ins Leben zu rufen, die sich umgehend mit diesem Problem befassen soll. Den Angaben zufolge werden etwa 90% des in der Ukraine erzeugten Ölrapses ausgeführt, zum größten Teil in die EU-Länder.

Market Scan Bioenergy Ukraine
Report for the Dutch Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality
Many business opportunities especially in the energy and bioenergy sector exist.
Ukraine does have the highest biomass potential in Europe which has largely been untapped and labor, especially in rural areas, is inexpensive. This provides many opportunities for investments in local bioenergy production and in the export of bioenegy feedstocks. Ukraine is already an important supplier of feedstock to Europe, exporting rape seed for biodiesel production and biomass (pellets) for electricity and heat production. Opportunities exist in upgrading of energy infrastructure incorporating biomass, setting up sustainable biomass production, transfer of knowledge and expertise, developing the oil seed and biodiesel sectors, setting up systems for complying/ monitoring of sustainable biomass production, development of a local biofuels market and infrastructure, rural biogas production in concert with expanding animal production, financing of the bioenergy sector.
