NEURC extended the ban on electricity imports from Russia and Belarus

The National Energy and Utilities Regulatory Commission (NEURC), at its meeting on September 29, decided to extend the ban on imports of electricity from Russia and Belarus until November 1, 2021, Kosatka.Media reports.

NEURC mentioned that the Ministry of Energy and the system operator did not receive letters on the need to restore imports from Russia and Belarus.

“The day before yesterday, on Monday (September 27, 2021 – ed.), a meeting of the anti-crisis headquarters was held at which the issue of extending the deadline for limiting the bandwidth was considered. Market participants and representatives of the Ministry of Energy insisted on the continuation of the specified import restrictions for at least a month. Representatives of NPC Ukrenergo noted that such a restriction would not negatively affect the operational safety of the Ukrainian energy system,” said during the meeting.

The members of NEURC also notes that in the future this issue will depend on how the accumulation of coal will take place.

To recap, from April 12 to 30, 2020 for the period of the quarantine, NPC Ukrenergo limited electricity imports and exports in the directions of Russia and Belarus to 0 MW.

On April 13, 2020, Ukrenergo cancelled the results of annual auctions for electricity exports-imports from Russia and Belarus.
