The Administrative Court of Appeal refused to satisfy the appeals of NPC Ukrenergo, the NEURC, SE Guaranteed Buyer to withdraw the provisional remedy, suspending NEURC Resolutions No.954 and No.955 of June 7, 2019, which set the tariffs for electricity transmission and dispatching.
These resolutions were suspended by the District Administrative Court to secure the claim of several industrial enterprises seeking to cancel these tariffs. This restraint has initially applied to all market participants. In early August, the court changed the scope of restraint, leaving it in force only for the claimant and four other companies. Currently, the court’s refusal to cancel the claim means that the validity of the resolutions remains suspended for the plaintiff and the other four companies and Ukrenergo’s earlier tariff (57.4 UAH/MWh) approved by the NEURC resolution of 12.12.2018 No. 1905 is in force.
For other market participants, in July 2019 tariffs set by the NEURC Resolutions of June 07, 219 No.954 and No.955 (UAH 347.43/MWh and 8.9 UAH/MWh, respectively) applied. As of August 1, 2019, the transmission tariff is UAH 312.14/MWh (NEURC Resolution of July 12, 2019 No. 1411), while the dispatching tariff since August 4 is 8.9 UAH/MWh (NEURC Resolution of August 1, 2019 No. 1622).
In early August, the NEURC greenlit for open discussion Ukrenergo’s new draft transmission tariff at the level of 159.3 UAH/MWh. The open discussion will take place at the NEURC on September 3, and, if approved, will become effective from October 1, 2019.
Also, the NEURC approved draft amendments to Ukrenergo’s dispatching tariff for public discussions. It is proposed to reduce it to 8.04 UAH/MWh from October 1, 2019.
