Energoreforma has published an interview with the head of the company Avenston

Solar energy in Ukraine is developing rapidly: the total installed capacity of commissioned solar power plants in 2017 exceeded 250 MW. For incomplete 2018, power has already more than doubled. But for long-term planning, investors need clear and stable rules of the game. Eight bills regulating the transition to auctions are now registered in parliament. However, the formation of a consolidated position on them is delayed. There is a discussion about the mechanisms for the implementation of auctions. For market participants, it is important that this mechanism should be fair for everyone and not “be discharged for several major players”. On legislative changes and on the features of the functioning of the solar energy market, Energoforma spoke with Dmytro Lukomskyi, CEO of Avenston.
