Future alternative electricity producers were awaiting a regulatory framework for the holding of auctions since the enactment of Ukrainian Law No. 2712-VIII of 25 April 2019, introducing amendments to certain Ukrainian Laws to provide competition in the alternative electricity production. The Law changed the ‘feed-in’ tariff regime and introduced a system of auctions in the Ukrainian renewable energy sector.
