Energy Transparency Index 2019

The Energy Transparency Index is developed to assess the actual status of information availability in the sector and to diagnose gaps.The Index main beneficiaries are the consumers, as their awareness improves the possibility of protecting their rights and helps rationalize economic behavior in the market. A strong interest in the Index exists among companies and potential investors who seek open, competitive environment, reduction of risks to their business, and a better relationship with the government and communities. The Index will be useful for public institutions responsible for information disclosure, helping them improve their transparency and regulations concerning such disclosures. Foreign partners will be able to better understand the energy policy and markets of Ukraine.The Index includes 233 indicators grouped into categories and is based on specific regulatory requirements and best global practices regarding information disclosure. The assessment was based on the analysis of data from open sources, focusing on the energy sector performance along the value chain, i.e. from production to consumption.

According to the assessment made in 2019, Ukraine’s final score is 48 out of 100 possible, which indicates insufficient transparency of the energy sector. At the same time, the transparency in all categories has increased by 3 to 14 points, and the Index score increased by 5 points comparing to 2018 score. This progress demonstrates that further efforts should be made to promote reforms and improve transparency of the energy sector.

The Index team has also prepared a detailed catalogue of links to primary sources of information for every indicator, available upon request (e-mail your request to author@dixigroup.org).

International Energy Transparency Index 2020: sector openness test – positive or negative?

Transparency is one of the key prerequisites for effective economic and market development, open competition, fair pricing, and formulation of balanced policy and regulation. Better information openness is also a safeguard against corruption.

Nord Stream 2 and sanctions: what to expect?

Political consensus is a shaky phenomenon, but beginning from December of last year the matter of sanctions against the Russian gas pipeline project became an exemplary implementation of bipartisan and bicameral consensus in the United States. So, what does the sanction “package” consist of now and what does it mean for Nord Stream 2?

Overall, the Energy Ministry’s proposal is essentially a step in the right direction, because it actually has the purpose of spending the greenhouse gas emission charge specifically on reducing emissions of those very greenhouse gases, thus performing a stimulating role in the transition to the “green” economy.
