3% from "green rate" – this is a maximum rate of responsibility which needs to be established for producers of energy and renewable sources, - Member of Ukrainian Parliament Valeriy Pysarenko says.
Member of Parliament suggests fixing this size in new version of the Draft Law №4493 "On electricity market of Ukraine", which was adopted by Verkhovna Rada in the first reading.
"Why it is important…The most affordable option to finance renewable energy projects is credit financing. According to the bank requirements, it is possible to obtain a credit only upon clearly defined conditions and limitations on borrowers’ liability. It is important for banks as well as for all potential investors to understand the maximum amount of liability of the producer of renewable energy in order to evaluate the possibility for efficient project implementation (revenue ratio)",– Mr. Pysarenko explained.
According to Valeriy Pysarenko`s opinion, this norm will help Ukraine to attract more investors and implement its obligations to European Energy Community by increasing the rate of renewable sources of energy in Ukrainian energy balance up to 11% by 2020.
Member of Parliament also considers that it is necessary to change in the Draft Law the tolerance margin of electric supply actual volumes, produced from renewable sources from the claimed daily pattern.
The current level of tolerance margin is 10% for "wind", 5% "for sun". Valeriy Pysarenko suggests establishing 50% for "wind" and 25% for "sun".
"When establishing the percentage for permitted tolerance margin, it is necessary to take in account availability or lack of infrastructure to forecast weather conditions, which gives opportunity to predict the strength and direction of the wind and the level of solar insolation. In this case we must remember that Ukrainian meteorological infrastructure is not adequate to make predictions. European experience is also important. Today, EU countries use various models of responsibility for energy imbalance. For example, in Spain the rate of deviation for “wind” is 20%, in Hungary and Belgium – 30% in Italy – 49% and in France, Portugal, Ireland and Latvia there is no such rate. Considering this, we should establish fair rate for Ukraine taking into account analytical and technical research", – Mr. Pysarenko said.
Valeriy Pysarenko filed 12 amendments to the Draft Law “On electricity market of Ukraine”. In total, special parliamentary committee received 1135 amendments to the Draft Law.
