Ukrainian Energy Week will be held on November 19-21 in Kyiv
The event will bring together four important Ukrainian forums that have been gathering key energy players for over three years:
- IIІ «Ukrainian Investment Forum «Oil and Gas» '18» | November 19
- ІІІ «Ukrainian Renewable Energy Forum ’18» | November 20
- ІІ «Ukrainian Energy Efficiency Forum ’18» | November 21
- І «Ukrainian Housing Cooperative Forum ’18» | November 21
The forums have become a regular meeting place for representatives of the energy sector, Ukrainian and foreign developers, investors, government officials and representatives of financial institutions. Their goal is to establish business contacts and create the basis for making important decisions, finding investment opportunities, discussing the development and ways of reforming key energy sectors.
The first of Ukrainian Energy Week will be the Ukrainian Investment Forum “Oil and Gas”. For the third time, the forum will bring together leading Ukrainian and international companies to discuss the prospects of the sector. The forum's key industry experts will cover the following topics: global trends in the oil and gas sector, the oil and gas market in Ukraine, and sector financing.
It is projected that since Ukraine produces less than 2% of gas each year, its own reserves should be 54 years old. In Europe, the average is 12 years, so Ukraine ranks first in Europe to provide the country with its own gas deposits. This confirms the relevance of the forum and the understanding of its own capacity, because Ukraine is able to extract gas more intensively due to the attraction in the investment industry and modern technologies. This will be discussed at the Ukrainian Oil and Gas Investment Forum, November 19.
The second forum on the Ukrainian Energy Week will be the Ukrainian Renewable Energy Forum. The forum will be held for the third time and became widely publicized among Ukrainian and international companies due to the relevance of the topic of alternative energy. Solar power engineering, wind and bioenergy, as well as investment opportunities of renewable energy in Ukraine are topics on which the forum will focus.
Recently, the issue of renewable energy has become more relevant. For example, from July 20 to 22, deputies of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine registered 6 bills on changes in the system of stimulating the development of "green energy". Concerned these changes in the transition from the "green" tariff (for many it seems non-progressive and expensive) to the system of auctions. Shifts are also taking place in the biofuel market, where, as the world practice shows, a single electronic trading platform is an effective mechanism. Work on the implementation of such a platform is underway.
The final energy week forum will be the 2nd Ukrainian Energy Efficiency Forum. As part of this year the Ukrainian housing cooperative forum will be held. The Energy Efficiency Forum will raise the current issues for the second time: Ukraine's energy efficiency strategy, energy efficiency reforms, investments in the energy efficiency market, as well as cooperation with other energy sectors.
The State Department for Energy Efficiency stresses that the introduction of "green" bonds in Ukraine will allow mobilizing the necessary investments for implementation of projects in the field of energy efficiency, as well as cheapen these financial resources. By 2020, the national targets set 11% of the net energy in the final energy consumption and 75% of the green energy in the total primary energy supply by 2035.
Issues in the oil and gas sector, renewable energy and energy efficiency will be considered during November 19-21 at the Olympic NSC. In addition to the main program during the event, a large-scale exhibition and thematic seminars will be held.
