Global energy system is undergoing constant development and radical changes, and these changes occur faster than expected. In the nearest 20 years, global electricity consumption may increase by more than 50% while greenhouse gas emissions may reduce by 75%*. It is deemed viable due to more than $10* tln of global investments by 2040 into new efficient generating capacities only. Rapid growth of energy demands requires re-organization of existing operating mechanisms and reframe of energy supply system in general. Certainly, these changes will not occur in one day, but modernization and improvement of key system mechanisms require our immediate decisive actions.
 
The New Energy Strategy of Ukraine until 2035 defines strategic areas and terms of further functioning and development of the Ukrainian energy system on its way to integration into the unified European energy system, in particular, implementation of modern globally competitive scientific researches of systems and equipment. Currently, there are successful functioning innovative infrastructure projects, there have been implemented changes as to energy resources management – during the year of 2017 there were adopted 4 laws regulating energy efficiency in Ukraine.
 
That is why it is essential to ensure a possibility to share best practices between Ukrainian participants of the energy market and other experts from SEERC region, and enable discussion of the fastest and most efficient ways for the European integration of the Ukrainian energy system.
 
THE SECOND REGIONAL CONFERENCE SEERC 2018 will be held in Kyiv on June 12-13, 2018 and is meant to become a communication platform for a productive dialogue between representatives of energy generating and energy distributing companies, producers of energy equipment and services, developers of innovative and forward-looking energy systems, Ukrainian government and international energy community as well as all those interested in formation and development of electricity market.
