The new electricity market has been successful, the initiative of the President about its postponement for a year is irrelevant.
This was written by the political analyst Alexei holomuzki on his page in Facebook, commenting on the submission by the President the bill to postpone the launch of the electricity market and the abolition of the “Rotterdam +”.
“The market started in a timely manner, the exchange auctions take place, power plants are working, the lights are on, all is well. Even skeptics acknowledge the Titanic work of power engineers in preparation for the reform of this magnitude. Moreover, the introduction of the new market automatically cancels the formula “Rotterdam +”, which was introduced in the transition period. As the market no we don’t need formulas — price determined only by demand and supply,” wrote golobutsky.
The analyst expressed surprise that the President has submitted to the Parliament another bill, which proposed to delay the launch of the electricity market in the year.
“And it is now on the website of the Verkhovna Rada appears the President’s bill … the transfer of the electricity market for the year and adjusted the formula “Rotterdam + “. I want to shout — what is Rotterdam? Transfer? The market today! The horse died, and the “responsible power” in the power team Andrew Gerus continues to ride on it. And fight with the Rotterdam formula, which now exists only in his imagination. Although everyone has long known that this formula never affect electrotherapy for the population. And eyesore only to owners of Ferroalloy plants,” — said golobutsky.
We will remind, on 1 July introduced a new wholesale electricity market, in accordance with the decision in 2017 by the Verkhovna Rada Law of Ukraine “On electricity market”. The launch of the market is Ukraine’s obligations within the framework of the implementation of the EU Third energy package. As well as the condition of Ukraine’s cooperation with the IMF and receiving macro-financial assistance from EU in the amount of 500 million euros this year. Retail electricity market within the reform of the energy market was launched on 1 January 2019.
