BMI's power service focuses chiefly on thermal sources, hydropower and nuclear electricity, while developments pertinent to the green segment will be discussed in depth in our renewables service. However, we continue to provide a detailed overview of the dynamics affecting the power sector. Ukraine's dependence on Russia for gas is a problem, as it exposes the country to import volatility and ongoing price disputes, which have been exacerbated by the government's power price subsidies. Domestic sources cannot fuel all gas-fired generation, so Ukraine wishes to boost its nuclear and renewables capacity. Investment is unlikely to reach the required level, while sales prices for power are low, although the International Monetary Fund is forcing through tariff increases.

Key trends and developments in the Ukrainian electricity market:

- Ukraine's power generation in 2011 is estimated by BMI to have been 177.28 terawatt hours (TWh). During the period 2012-2021, Ukraine's overall power generation is expected to increase by an annual average of 2.12%, reaching 218.64TWh. Driving this growth will be an annual average gain of 2.57% in gas-fired generation. Non-hydro renewables will also play a bigger role in the country's energy mix, growing by an annual average of 15.34% between 2012 and 2021.
- Ukraine has a much more aggressive view of power consumption trends than BMI. An increase in electricity demand to 307TWh by 2020 and to 420TWh by 2030 is envisaged by the state, and government policy is to continue supplying half of this from nuclear power. This will require 29.5 gigawatts (GW) of nuclear capacity in 2030, up from the current rate of 13.85GW. The scale of the increase is at odds with likely economic growth and population needs, and the cost of the capacity expansion programme is likely to be beyond Ukraine's capabilities.
- The Ukrainian government has announced that it will privatise four of the country's power plants, reports Ria Novosti. The privatisation programme is intended to reduce Ukraine's dependence upon costly Russian natural gas imports, as well as forcing the plants to adopt new environmentally friendly technology. The facilities to be privatised are the Dneprodzerzhinsk, Kharkov No. 5, Kherson and Odessa power plants. The Ukrainian government lifted a ban on the privatisation of the country's 13 largest power plants in April 2012.
