RES auctions in Ukraine Quota Sizing

Key messages:

  • A RES share of 25% in electricity generation in 2035 (Energy Strategy 2035) calls for a Quota of around 500MW RES per year
  • In 2018 ~750MW of RES were installed, so that a more ambitious target (>25%) seems realistically achievable
  • Auctioning the same volumes every year establishes certainty and predictability for investors and the industry
  • Quotas are sensitive to (market) developments and target changes. To account for this, monitoring and regular revisions need to be introduced
