"...The biofuel market in Ukraine has a number of problems that require an immediate solution. Thus, instability of prices for biofuels negatively affects the work of existing and the emergence of new generating facilities. The price of firewood, pellets, cod and other solid biofuels may vary by area several times.

The mechanism for organizing the biofuel market in Ukraine should be the use of a single electronic platform where all interested producers and consumers will have a possibility for biofuels trading.

Thus, instability of prices, unreliability of supply and doubtful quality of biofuels negatively affect the work of existing and the emergence of new generating facilities. This indicates that the biofuels market is developing spontaneously and needs to be changed.

On July 10th, AEBIOM changes name to become Bioenergy Europe, that aims at giving a clearer, more united voice to Europe’s first source of renewable energy.

UABio has been a Full Member of Bioenergy Europe (formerly known as AEBIOM) Association for 2 years already.

Bioenergy is among Europe’s most recent industrial success stories. The figures speak for themselves: biomass is now Europe’s first source of locally produced energy, representing more than 60% of the total renewable energy consumed and employing more than 500.000 people, similar to the pharmaceutical industry. This leading role in the energy transition – underpinned by the great diversity of the sector – deserves greater recognition and understanding from all EU stakeholders.

Bioenergy Association of Ukraine appealed to the Head of the State Agency on Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving of Ukraine Serhii Savchuk on stimulation of energy crops cultivation in Ukraine and sent results of calculations of the required compensation per hectare for such energy crops as poplar, willow and Miscanthus.

According to the calculations of UABio experts, a one-time subsidy per hectare for the cultivation of energy crops can be 20,000 UAH for poplar, 21,000 UAH for willow and 24,000 UAH for Miscanthus. The necessary amount of compensation was calculated on the basis of the need to receive in such investment projects IRR ≥ 20% with 60% of the loan in euros for 8 years at 8% per annum.
