Experts of the USAID Transparent Energy Project keep adding new information to the online energy map of Ukraine.
In particular, the number of investigations increased significantly in October. The appropriate bubble of the map has been extended by 21 new journalistic investigations, three of which are related to the electricity sector, eight to the gas market, four to the oil products market, and one to the heat supply sector.
Oleksii Mykhailenko, a new project expert, will collect and process fiscal and financial data. The focus will be on financial transactions with the budget (revenues, expenditures, subventions, inter-budget transfers), quasi-fiscal operations and financial statements of state-owned enterprises.
For the electricity sector, datasets of characteristics of low-voltage distribution networks have been created and prepared, also covering the quality of electric current. For the petroleum products sector, datasets reflecting the volumes of oil transportation and transit have been updated.
Based on the collected data, we have prepared an article discussing important heat supply indicators. It is about the planned and actual volumes of heat outputs, use of heat for production needs, heat losses in networks, and net supplies to consumers.
In addition, new datasets have been prepared for online map data visualization and updating. These include, in particular, the structure of tariffs in the heat supply sector, gas distribution and supply volumes, and the bioenergy sector.
The new data from project expert Viacheslav Antonenko reflect the outputs of biomass production by households for their own needs (in regional context), biomass consumption and its role in the energy balance, and pellet production and export. This information will be processed and uploaded to the online energy map.
Basic translation of the online map into English has been completed. From now on, English-speaking users can enjoy access to most categories with relevant information; and translation is currently underway of the actual data sets displayed in each bubble of the online map.
The online map of the domestic energy sector developed by experts of the DiXi Group Think Tank and the Coalition of the USAID Transparent Energy Project was presented on July 14, 2017.
