Oleksiy Orzhel, the BRDO’s Energy sector head, said that it is impossible to develop the market of electric charging stations in Ukraine without creating an appropriate legislative framework. This was discussed during the presentation of the Concept for development of the market of electric charging stations as part of the Third International Exhibition of Electric Vehicles and Plug-In Ukraine hybrids.

In Ukraine, there is actually no market of electric charging stations, and this hinders the development of the segment of environmentally friendly transport modes significantly. Using electric cars requires to resolve a number of issues on their maintenance and service. A specialized cluster of topical issues is related to the development of infrastructure, in particular the conditions to connect to electricity networks. That is why BRDO experts conducted a detailed study of the regulation of energy efficiency markets and the retail electricity market. It served as a basis to develop the Concept for development of the market of electric charging stations.

“Electric cars reduce the state’s dependence on energy resources, promote environmental safety and have a positive impact on the country’s economy as a whole. However, in Ukraine, the development of this sector is impossible without creating the appropriate legislative framework for the market of electric charging stations,” the Energy sector head Oleksiy Orzhel said.
