As reported earlier, due to the entry into force on May 15, 2021, of a new law amending legislation on certification of transmission system operators, the NEURC has been entitled to limit the available bandwidth allocated for daily and monthly auctions in 2021, as regards interstate crossings between Ukraine and countries that are not parties to the Energy Community.
