The aim of this assignment is to improve modelling of the power system to be able to update and revise the Energy Strategy of Ukraine. The project is part of the Energy Partnership Programme (Ukraine-Denmark Energy Centre, UDEC) between Ukraine and Denmark.
In order to support the decision-making process for how Ukraine can achieve its energy goals, the modelling capability needs to include security of supply, integration of renewables and consideration of power markets. The revised energy strategy will then include mechanisms for achieving the goals of the energy sector.
Ea Energy Analyses has a supporting role in the project, primarily providing technical assistance, knowledge exchange and recommendations, as well as project management and administration support. A local team in Ukraine will work with the power system model, data update, model improvements and testing, as well as result preparation and presentation activities.
The project is carried out for the Danish Energy Agency in partnership with COWI, and it runs from August 2020 to January 2021.
