According to a monitoring report on Ukraine’s Association Agreement with the EU, the country has achieved progress in the reform of its electricity sector. September’s report covers Ukraine’s progress in the implementation of its Association Agreement with the EU, focusing on the areas of energy and the environment.

The report says that the newly established Coordination Centre for the introduction of a new electricity market has instigated the progress in the electricity sector, while new gas tariffs for Ukrainian consumers have also been set by the government. At the same time, the report points out a lack of decisions in the gas sector, while experts underline that Ukraine is also lagging behind in terms of the implementation of its commitments in the oil and oil products sector.

The report was developed as part of the EU-supported project “Enhancing the role of civil society for the implementation of Ukraine's commitments within the Energy Community”, which aims at assisting Ukraine’s progress in energy sector reforms.
