Ukraine Energy Sector Reform: Cutting the Gordian Knot?

25 November 2015 - 4:30pm to 6:00pm

Chatham House, London


Olena Pavlenko, Head, Dixi Group, Ukraine
Torsten Woellert, Team Leader Energy and Environment, Support Group for Ukraine, European Commission
Chair: John Lough, Russia and Eurasia Programme, Chatham House



A well-known source of high-level corruption and characterized by low efficiency and a high degree of monopolization, Ukraine's energy sector needs radical reform to meet European standards. The new government has pledged to decrease dependence on Russian gas, increase transparency and align Ukraine’s gas market with the EU’s Third Energy Package.

This event will analyse the progress of Ukraine’s energy reform and discuss key impediments to change.

This event will be held on the record. Attendance is by invitation only.
