  • As a UNIAN correspondent reports, 282 people’s deputies voted for the adoption of the bill “On combined production of heat and electricity (cogeneration) and the use of waste energy potential” (No. 4527), with the required minimum of 226 votes.

    During the presentation of the bill, Deputy Energy Minister Yuriy Vlasenko noted that the purpose of its development is to harmonize the provisions of the current legislation of Ukraine with the principles and provisions of the legislation of the European Union in the field of the development of highly efficient cogeneration.

    “The adoption of the bill will create conditions for the development of highly efficient cogeneration in Ukraine in accordance with the provisions of the European Union, will transform the existing heat generating facilities into highly efficient combined production of electricity and heat. It will also increase the use of fuel and reduce the use of resources, in particular gas, in public production.” , – said Vlasenko.

    To achieve this goal and increase the use and environmental friendliness of fuel, the draft law provides for the introduction of terminology in the use of high-efficiency cogeneration in accordance with EU directives, the analysis of the costs of high-efficiency cogeneration for heat generating facilities over 200 MW and the establishment of qualification indicators.

    Why always over a 100 vote against every bill which is good for Ukraine? And this bill is…………….
    And always the same 100………………
