  • Proven flexibilities of UA‘s electricity system sufficient to balance higher shares of RES
  • Low RES development at high costs – adjustment of support scheme needed
  • Adjustment of FIT towards RES generation costs would reduce cost for Green Tariff significantly
  • Incentives to increase the distribution of RES in Ukraine will decrease balancing needs and network cost
