Behind Ukraine’s Energy Transition: Overcoming Key Challenges

DiXi Group experts have prepared a special policy brief for the Western audiences. The paper explains two major challenges in reforming Ukraine’s energy sector – first, the dependence on energy supplies from Russia and low domestic production, second, the role of oligarchs in energy policy. The first challenge has been almost solved, another one is still on the agenda.

Based on available information, experts analyzed the opportunities of gas supplies diversification  since 2005, and the reasons why Ukraine couldn’t have expanded reverse gas flows from Europe for quite a long time.

The second part of the paper refers to the role of oligarch structures, which in certain way have affected the energy policy in Ukraine. This part includes an overview of political processes and analysis of oligarchs’ influence on the energy market.

More information about these and other factors, which are standing behind the reforms of Ukrainian energy market, you can find in the analytical paper “Behind Ukraine’s Energy Transition: Overcoming Key Challenges”.

The paper was prepared following the internship of DiXi Group junior analyst at the Center for International Studies (CERI) in Paris, operating under the auspices of Sciences Po (Paris Institute of Political Studies).

The internship took place in the framework of the Ukrainian Think Tank Development Initiative, implemented by the International Renaissance Foundation (IRF) in partnership with the Think Tank Fund (TTF) and funded by the Embassy of Sweden in Ukraine (SIDA).

The “Augean stables” of the extractive sector: is there any progress?

The practice of procuring special extraction permits and then sitting idle on them for decades is unacceptable from the viewpoint of Ukraine’s energy independence and national security, raising budget revenues and the country’s investment attractiveness.
