Abstract

Energy independence was chosen by Ukraine as one of its development priorities; it covers the reduction of gas consumption and the gas replacement, increase of the energy efficiency in various public life spheres, development of the renewable energy sector. Many published papers of Ukrainian scientists, as well as expert’s reports are dedicated to the challenges in the rollout of the renewable energy sector, however the regulatory and legal support for the development of the aforementioned sector has been considered only fragmentary. Therefore, the issue of the legislative control of the renewable energy sector development under the current European integration conditions requires further research and systematization. Purpose of the article is to determine the major contradictions reflecting the current status of the regulatory and legal control in the renewable energy sector development, to research and propose the corresponding improvement prospects. The article is presenting the regulatory basis assessment and systematization of the Ukrainian renewable energy sector legislation. Insights are given to major contradictions observed in the regulatory and legal provisions of the governmental regulation related to the renewable energy development. Practical proposals are made for the improvement of the legislation related to the provisioning of the Ukrainian United Energy Power System operational safety during the peak-load hours through introduction of the electrical energy storage system. Over the past years, Ukrainian authorities have made several important efforts towards the creation and development of the legislative basis in the renewable energy sector, however this sector is still considered in the context of the alternative energy development, which becomes a prospect for further investigations.
