MOSCOW, 28 Jan - RIA Novosti/Prime. After the statements of the Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk of non-compliance of Ukraine's interests When signing the contract for the supply of electricity from Russia, Ukrainian politicians this week talking about the need to disconnect the power supply system of the country from the Russian, And integrate it with the European.
Ex-energy Minister of Ukraine Ivan Plachkov, currently chairs the all-Ukrainian energy Assembly considers it necessary to do Even despite the decrease in reliability of supply. Interviewed Last news experts believe that Ukraine will not be able to find currently the required volume of investments in the power industry for integration into the European power system.
in circulation Plachkov reported that the isolated work of the Ukrainian energy system " will provide an opportunity to reduce its energy dependence on Russia, And also to eliminate discriminatory rules of purchase of electricity ". However, he stresses that need organized disable clients.
" without a doubt, in case of division 2 of the power systems will be dramatically reduced reliability of the power system of Ukraine, And may receive an imbalance between production And consumption. However, a properly organizing the limits of customers, by optimizing sequential regulated outages, And not chaotic And unorganized, which we saw in the beginning of winter last year, the power system will work is balanced, " said Plachkov.
according to him, the next step should be the Integration of the Ukrainian energy system in Europe. The former Minister believes that the integration can be carried out prior to the end of 2015.
According to experts, When disconnecting the power systems of Ukraine will not avoid blackouts speaks of himself Plachkov.
" Outsideness from Russia, Ukraine loses the possibility of maneuverability. The energy crisis of the end of last year showed that if only there was no such possibility maneuverability, the country up to the present moment would be in the position of the continuous rolling blackout. As long as they do not establish a complete supply its power stations with coal, there are big risks, " says the Director of the energy development Fund Sergey Pikin.
1st Deputy Director General of the Institute of problems of natural monopolies Bulat Nigmatulin emphasizes that 40% of electricity production in the Ukraine have on coal plants, which consume most of the Donbas or Kuzbass coal, South African not suitable for them.
Integration of the Ukrainian energy system in the European, in the opinion of specialists, requires very large investments. Sergey Pikin commented that it is difficult to give a specific estimate of the required payment, but it will be measured in billions of euros.
" To be integrated into the energy system of the EU, it is necessary to work according to EU standards. And you have to understand, because this would require the construction of infrastructure that will meet these standards. It will be necessary to bring into congruence with the requirements of the EU transmission line, to build a proper station. Even in the fat years, in the mid-2000s, when all was well in the economy, Ukraine has failed to implement this project. The main reason was financial. I'm not sure that in the current situation it may be. The trend is possible, of course, but obviously will not happen in the next few years, " says Beijing.
reviews Nigmatulina, When considering the integration of the Ukrainian energy system into the European important factor is the cost of electricity. A similar step, in the opinion of the expert, is not economically justified for Ukraine.
" in the European Union at present, the wholesale price of an estimated 5 cents. When the devaluation of the rouble And hryvnia it supposedly 4 rubles per 1 KW. O'clock As we have on the market (RF - editor) is 1, 2 rubles, " - emphasizes the expert.
