Announcement of the debate "Subsidies Monetization Models: Time to Choose"

25 November 2016

On November 29, 2016 at 10:30 a.m., at the Ukraine Crisis Media Centre, the debate will be held on the topic "Subsidies Monetization Models: Time to Choose".


While there is no government decision on the monetization model, recipients of subsidies are not motivated to use energy efficiently and invest in energy saving. In expectation of the government's consensus there is a need to introduce and provide an expert opinion concerning the existing models. 


In the course of the debate, we are going to discuss the following issues: which monetization model is optimal and how much additional money is required for the payment monetization; whether the pilot monetization project is required; why the monetization of subsidies for the population cannot precede or occur simultaneously with the state's transition to cash settlements with public heating utilities; how to improve the verification of beneficiaries and how to pay out the saved money to ensure their optimal use.
