NUPI and NUCC invites leading experts to share their views in recent changes in the Ukrainian energy market.

Ukraine’s dependence on energy imports from Russia was one of the key factors influencing Ukrainian politics. However, after the conflict between Ukraine and Russia broke out and the EU-Ukraine Association Agreementsigned in 2014, Kyiv declared its course on diversifying energy supplies aimed at achieving better energy security.

The increase in domestic energy production, energy-saving measures, green tariffs and enhanced transparency within the tender process present new opportunities for energy actors in one of the biggest energy markets in Eastern Europe.

Statoil was the first Norwegian company to supply gas to Ukraine in 2014-2015. At the same time, new feed-in tariffs attract international companies to invest in renewables in Ukraine.

NUPI and Norwegian-Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce invite Norwegian and Ukrainian leading experts on energy to share their views on the recent changes in the Ukrainian petroleum and renewable energy markets and their influence on the political and business climate.
