Business welcomes the adoption of a draft law on gas metering in energy units

03/ 11/ 2021
  Yesterday the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine supported draft law №2553. It provides for the measurement of gas in kWh units of energy which will simplify the accounting for the business while gas consumers will be able to pay only for the amount of gas consumed depending on the calorific value (rather than the amount they are assumed to consume). Currently, the measurement in cubic meters does not take into account the calorific value of the fuel. It also synchronizes the Ukrainian gas transportation system with the European system, where gas is measured in kWh and thus it will facilitate Ukraine’s integration into the European energy market. Gas metering in kWh units of energy considers the calorific value of gas which is important primarily for consumers. In Ukraine, the calorific value of gas, depending on the pipeline to which the consumer is connected, can vary significantly – up to 20%. On behalf of the European Business Association, we thank the deputies for adopting this long-awaited document.   Be the first to learn about the latest EBA news with our Telegram-channel – EBAUkraine.
