Last year, publication of this data was regarded as an achievement

“Speaking about convenience of work, we have a huge request to the Energy Ministry of Ukraine to resume publication of information about coal stocks at thermal power and cogeneration plants in a format suitable for data analysis. It’s a pity to see something that was good and regarded last year as an achievement now becoming worse,” Hennadiy Riabtsev said.
In addition, he said, ETI experts recommended the Cabinet of Ministers to transfer to the State Statistics Service the powers of forming local energy product balances in the part concerning compliance with Annex C to the Regulation (EC) No 1099/2008.
It is worth reminding that in the latest edition of the 2021 Energy Transparency Index (ETI), DiXi Group assessed transparency of the energy sector at 63 out of 100 possible points. The assessment presented in the recent release of ETI is based on an analysis of data from open sources concerning operation and development of the energy sector along the “producer-to-consumer” chain.
The Energy Transparency Index-2021 covers 212 indicators grouped into eight categories. This year’s edition of ETI was supplemented by three new indicators based on the Clean Energy Package – the current framework rules for energy markets in the EU. Overall, development of the ETI methodology took over a year, and the gathering of data for an annual assessment based on more than 200 indicators continued for almost four months.
