From July 1, 2019, you can purchase electricity in Ukraine at electronic auctions held by СE "Ukrainian Energy Exchange". The new rules for the sale of electricity apply to producers and suppliers and are regulated by the Law "On the electricity market".
The procedure of purchase of electricity on the exchange - new rules are explained by CE UEEX experts.
The purchase of electricity under bilateral contracts can be made on the online platform of the CE"Ukrainian Energy Exchange", which is currently the only one in Ukraine for such transactions. Prior to the introduction of the new conditions the electricity market in Ukraine operated as follows:
- producers (nuclear, hydro and thermal power plants, as well as power plants running on alternative energy sources) sold electricity in bulk to the SE “Energorynok”;
- in its turn, the SE “Energorynok” resold the received resource to energy supply companies;
- energy supply companies ensured the sale of electricity to the final consumers.
In this case it was possible to purchase electricity at centrally set tariffs. However after the reform, prices began to be formed on free, competitive terms. Yes, according to Article No. 58 of the Law "On the electricity market", consumers have the opportunity to purchase electricity in one of 4 ways:
- by signing bilateral contracts directly with producers or suppliers who have already purchased electricity, and not only with regional energy suppliers;
- on the Day-ahead market, which can be deciphered as "buy today at a free price for tomorrow";
- on the Intraday market - you can buy electricity a few hours before its consumption;
- in the balancing market - electricity is bought and sold to settle imbalances.
