Recently, positive changes in RES powered small energy have been observed in the neighboring countries of Russia and Ukraine.
A plan to stimulate small energy based on RES was approved in Russia on July 19. This refers to photovoltaic modules and windmills with a capacity of up to 15 kW. According to this plan, consumers will be able to give surpluses of generated electricity to a centralized power grid, and energy-supplying organizations (power supplies of regions and cities) will be obliged to buy it. Revenues from the sale of electricity surpluses will not be taxed. The Ministry of Energy and Economy, as well as the FAS, should prepare the bill by January 2018, and draft government resolutions on a simplified connection of RES to the common power grid should be prepared by April 2018.

And on the initiative of the “Ukrainian Wind Energy Association” (UWEA) on July 21, 2017, public consultations were held on introducing a “green” tariff and a unified accounting system for hybrid and combined power grids using renewable energy sources for private households. Technical and legal issues regarding the introduction of a single value of the “green tariff” and issues on the simplification of the procedure for issuing permission to connect to the grid were considered at the meeting. The attendees unanimously supported the proposal of the UWEA and decided to apply to the higher authorities for the preparation of the relevant legislative documents on amending the Law of Ukraine “On Alternative Energy Sources”.
You can find out more about the technical and legal part of the vision of the introduction of a single “green” tariff for combined power grids (wind-and-sun, with a total capacity of up to 30 kW), as well as presentations of participants and adopted decisions at the official website of the UWEA.
