  2. 2. Agreement with ENTSO-E July 7, 2017 On June 28, 2017 in Brussels Agreement on the Conditions for Future Interconnection of Power System of Ukraine with Power System of Continental Europe was signed Agreement took effect The agreement contains: 1. Catalogue of Measures; 2. List of necessary additional researches; 3. Road Map To date, the Agreement has been approved by 28 European system operators of the ENTSO-E “Continental Europe” Regional Group The deadline for the implementation of all activities of the Catalogue of Measures is 5 years. Another year is needed to work in an isolated mode (physically disconnected from the power systems of the Russian Federation, Belarus and ENTSO-E). Under the agreement, Ukrenergo undertakes to implement the technical provisions contained in the catalogue of measures, and to check the island mode of operation of the integrated power system. The implementation of all activities and operation in an island mode should be a condition for a positive decision of ENTSO-E to switch to parallel work with Ukraine and Moldova in 2023. 28 європейських ОСП

  13. 13. International support Over the course of two years, Ukrenergo has managed to form a strong international coalition to support the integration of Ukraine's IPS into the ENTSO-E power system. Constructive relations with numerous European TSOs and international partners enable the implementation of joint projects: Project for Support to the Integration of Ukraine's Power System with the Continental Europe Synchronous Area (CESA) Goal of the project: identification of the following priority investment projects aimed at promoting synchronisation with the Continental Europe Synchronous Area (CESA) and improving the transmission system efficiency. On 15 August 2018 KfW reported that the Application for Grant Funding was approved by the Council of the EU Neighborhood Investment Facility (NIF). Cooperation with the US within the framework of the US-Ukraine Strategic Energy Dialogue In the letter of 13 February 2019 to the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin, US Deputy Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette supported ongoing and new cooperation, in particular, related to the enhancement of physical and cyber security and support for ENTSO-E integration. Consultations on the first visit of US experts to Ukrenergo on these initiatives are underway. Testing of power units using USAID grant funding Goal of the project: Testing of TPPs, CHPPs and HPSs on frequency and excitation control to look into the possibility of synchronous operation of power systems of Ukraine and Moldova with the power system of ENTSO-E Continental Europe. Tests on 11 power units of TPPs, CHPPs and HPPs were started on January 22, 2019 and were completed on April 26, 2019.
  14. 14. International support Project for RES Integration in Ukraine" Goal of the project: to develop new approaches to the operation of the power system, mechanisms for determining the necessary strategic reserves and ensuring the flexibility of the power system, determining its optimal configuration, etc. The decision of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy of Germany is to be finalised to extend a corresponding grant to the German Energy Agency (DENA) Project for Consulting Services on ENTSO-E Integration under the Second Power Transmission Project (PTP-2) Goal of the project: preparation for signing agreements between TSOs, conducting three training workshops on following the scheduling rules adopted by the ENTSO-E, and helping to develop the Terms of Reference to expand the functionality of existing software for analyzing and modeling the power system for successful synchronisation with the ENTSO -E. On 5 April 2018, Ukrenergo signed a contract for consulting service related to the integration into ENTSO-E with Elia Group, funded by the World Bank. Project for construction of energy storage capacities Goal of the project: carrying out the relevant study on the testing of balancing methods of solar and wind power plants, whose share in the IPS of Ukraine is rapidly increasing. At the end of December 2018, the Ministry of Economy and Finance of France approved the decision to provide a grant to RTE to carry out a study within the framework of the Project for the construction of energy storage capacities in the Integrated Power System of Ukraine.
  15. 15. ENTSO-E Cooperation Beyond Membership Programme On 13 February, in Brussels, an Agreement on the participation of Ukrenergo in the ENTSO-E Cooperation Beyond Membership Programme for 2019-2021 was signed during a meeting with ENTSO-E Secretary-General Laurent Schmitt Cooperation Beyond Membership Programme is a unique type of partnership between ENTSO-E and Ukrenergo (in accordance with the recommendations for cooperation under Regulation (EC) No. 714/2009 between ENTSO-E and the TSOs non-members of the network) The goal is to create the framework for receiving the expertise and the best practices on the most pressing issues for the company as regards the integration into ENTSO-E The Programme envisages: 1. Workshops suited to Ukrenergo needs 2. 10-day field trip of Ukrenergo employees to the ENTSO-E Secretariat 3. Long-tern internship of Ukrenergo employees in the ENTSO-E Secretariat First Introductory Workshop with the participation of ENTSO-E Secretary General, Mr Laurent Schmitt, on ENTSO-Е’s key policies, processes, platforms, etc., will take place on 29 May 2019 at Ukrenergo
  16. 16. Key findings As never before, Ukraine has a historic opportunity to make within a short period a strategic step to enhance its own energy security and a full-scale integration into the European energy market. Ukrenergo plays a major role in the process of integration of the IPS of Ukraine into the ENTSO-E Power System. However, ENTSO-E integration should be a common goal for all market participants and key stakeholders. Thus, achieving a common goal will require: 1. Modernisation of the power units at the scale necessary to ensure the frequency and active power control in the isolated mode of operation of Ukraine's IPS. Responsible entities are generating companies 2. Creation of a detailed plan to prepare for the power system’s operation in an isolated mode for further approval by the NSDC of Ukraine Responsible body is Ukrenergo 3. Achieve full compliance of Ukrainian electricity legislation with the European law Responsible bodies are the Verkhovna Rada, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, and NEURC 4. Introduction of a new model of the electricity market Responsible bodies are the Verkhovna Rada, the Cabinet of Ministers, NEURC, Ukrenergo, Energorynok, market participants 5. Certification of SE NPC Ukrenergo as a transmission system operator as soon as possible to allow to obtain the observer status in the ENTSO-E Responsible bodies are NEURC, the Ministry of Finance, Ukrenergo 6. Proper financing of Ukrenergo's activities related to ENTSO-E integration Responsible body is NEURC 7. Consolidation of foreign policy effortss related to ENTSO-E integration Responsible bodies are the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade
