Output 3 Tools for integration of Renewable Energy

Output 3

Tools for integration of Renewable Energy, a system for short-term forecast of production from wind and solar PV and support to development of wind measuring infrastructure, as well as general support to Ukraine’s efforts to converge its electricity market regulation to that of the EU

Output indicator 3

  • Tools and methodologies proposed to support integration of renewables in the Ukrainian electricity system including the need for flexible thermal generation, storage capacity, data hub, RES auction design to facilitate integration of RE.

Baseline

Support of Datahub creation activities in Ukraine

RES auctioning of new power capacity

Recommendations to Ukraine for developing RES auctions to facilitate integration of RE included specific proposals for introduction of auctions for state support for renewable energy in Ukraine (e.g. organizational setup, preparations before auctioning, planning, requirements to bidders, tendering process and selection criteria) with concrete proposals on reduction of the price of electricity, support for small scale renewable energy generation, provision of security of supply and sustainable development of the Energy system of Ukraine.
