Implementation of competitive principles in the electricity sales market


The Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine has taken a step towards improving competition in the electricity sales market. At a meeting of the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine on March 12, 2019, the Cabinet's proposals for introducing competitive relations in the electricity market were approved. These proposals relate to the introduction of electricity trading.

The Law of Ukraine “On the Electricity Market”, as well as the Codes of transmission and distribution systems, stipulate the principle of competitive sale of electricity as a commodity in this market.

The AMCU is convinced that the exchange trades should ensure the practical implementation of this principle.

For our part, we will continue to monitor the AMCU initiatives in the field of implementation of competitive principles in the electricity market of Ukraine.
