Escalation of Ukraine’s Renewable Energy Crisis: A Year in Review


As we previously reported, by the end of 2019, Ukraine faced difficulties in complying with its feed-in-tariff (“FiT”) regime for the renewable energy sector because the FiT that the government owed to renewable energy producers substantially exceeded market prices.

In June 2020, the Ukrainian government and industry associations representing some (but not all) producers of renewable energy signed a Memorandum of Understanding (the “MoU”). The primary goal of the MoU was to solidify the financial position of the State-owned entity “Guaranteed Buyer” (“GB”), which is the offtaker responsible for paying FiTs to producers. The MoU contemplated that the FiT would be reduced and was implemented into legislation enacted in August 2020. The Ukrainian government, in turn, undertook to ensure GB’s timely payment of the (reduced) FiT and gradually repay the existing debt to renewable energy producers that had accrued since the beginning of 2020.
