Renewable Investments in Ukraine – Creeping Frustration?
Wednesday, May 19, 2021
15.00 - 17.00
Energy & Natural Resources
By 2035, the Ukrainian government has committed to increase the use of renewables to 25% of the energy mix. Development of the sector has been rapid in recent years, but the energy market faced a difficult year in 2020 and concerns are growing from RES investors. The government has introduced legislative changes that reduced previously guaranteed returns and is looking at chipping away on the guarantees even further in order to tackle the mounting tariff deficit of the renewable energy scheme. Moreover, recent proceedings before the Constitutional Court threaten the basis for the remuneration of renewable energy producers altogether.
This webinar provides an update on the latest developments and a cautious outlook for 2021. We will hear from legal experts and industry stakeholders on the impact on energy producers and possible remedies under international law, disputes funding and damage calculation.
