The FINANCIAL — The EU Delegation to Ukraine and the Support Group for Ukraine of the European Commission, with the support of the INOGATE Technical Secretariat, are launching a series of high-level events on Energy Market Reform and Sustainable Energy Policy for Ukrainian policy and decision-makers.
The main aim of the events is to help the coordinated implementation of a market-oriented and sustainable energy policy that can help Ukraine not only to decrease energy dependence on Russian gas, but to improve the economic situation in the country, according to EU Neighbourhood Info Centre.
The first in the series of policy talks will be organised in mid-October and will be devoted to the topic of energy tariffs as well as regulation of end-customer tariffs and the application of subsidies, a detailed understanding of the components of the tariff and cost recovery and an accurate reflection of the costs incurred by the various customer categories.
INOGATE is an EU-funded programme promoting international energy co-operation between the European Union and the Partner Countries of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan. It works to support the EU policy frameworks of the Baku Initiative, the Eastern Partnership – Energy Security Platform and the Energy Community.
