Experts Explained the Pros of Reforms in Simple Terms

03 February 2016

Representatives of DiXi Group Analytical Centre presented the booklet “Why is the Energy Community important for me?” Using infographics and simple facts, the experts outlined all pros of the so called EU Third Energy Package for ordinary Ukrainians.

The booklet contains several chapters, dedicated to certain sectors: Gas, Electricity, Environment etc. Every chapter ends with answers to a simple question “Where will it get us?”

“It took about six months to write the book”, told Anastasiia Yermakova, Manager for European Integration Programs, DiXi Group. “We faced a challenging task — we had to tell about complex things in simple terms. I believe we managed to do it. I tested the booklet on my relatives. Earlier, when telling them about energy reforms, I stumbled upon misunderstanding, but everything changed after they read the book”.

According to Olena Pavlenko, President, DiXi Group, reform outreach is no less important than reforms themselves. “If people do not understand how and why the sector is changed, they will not be able to control the government and will be easy to manipulate. It is especially important in Ukraine where populism still thrives”, told the President of DiXi Group. 

The booklet was published within the framework of the project, jointly implemented by DiXi Group and Resource and Analysis Centre “Society and Environment”, and financed by the European Union.

For reference: The EU Third Energy Package is a set of rules, adopted in 2009. They are aimed at strengthening competition and transparency in gas and electricity markets. They have become binding on Ukraine since 2011.
