Currently in Ukraine a series of reforms associated with the reorganization of energy sector functioning bases are being implemented.
The coal industry reform provides for the implementation of the exchange trading in coal products and market pricing for coal. Within the scope of the coal industry reform LLC "Ukrainian Energy Exchange" has been included by the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine to the list of commodity exchanges which organize coal trading.
Today the reform of the gas market is realized as well as creation of new liberalized electricity market. The urgency of the energy sector reform is caused among other things by accession of Ukraine in late 2010 to the European Energy Community.
