    Biogas and green tariffs in Ukraine A profitable investment?

    (Code:AGPP 26)

    The Ukrainian government encourages investments into the establishment of bioenergy facilities offering privileges for producers. Among these privileges is a higher tariff for electricity generated from alternative sources of energy – the so called “green tariff”.

    The “green tariff” is a feed-in tariff differentiated for 1) each company that produces electricity from alternative sources of energy, 2) each type of alternative energy and 3) each single facility. The green tariff for electric energy from biomass is 1.6135 UAH/kWt including VAT. The difference between the “green” tariff and retail energy tariff gives biogas producers an opportunity to realize higher earnings than other energy producers.
